Morning from Minakami and we're really into the last bit of the season now with only Tenjindaira remaining open and spring activity ramping up down in the town and valleys.

There's still a lot of snow still left up there (official snow depth still above 3m) so if you are looking for some spring time fun there's still a lot to be had.

It's a cloudy start to the day here with rain forecast for tonight and into tomorrow.

Clearer weather is forecast for Sunday.

Planned closing dates of ski resorts in Minakami (subject to change):

Until early May
Tanigawa Tenjindaira

Note that the Tenjin Toge pair lift at Tenjindaira will be closed now on weekdays through until Friday 24th April. The reason being that the lift is used for tourism in the 'green season' and they need to prepare it for those operations. It does seem a long time to be closed for that, but that's what it says here! That lift being closed does limit things on weekdays, so do keep in mind if you are planning on visiting.

All other resorts are now closed for the season.
