Slightly overcast here today at the base of Tenjin but plenty of snow around and there's a constant procession of hikers making for the peak. The base up top is still at a robust 360cm however the cat track is starting to look pretty thin at the bottom of the mountain.

The crew from local snowboard makers TJ Brand and Twelve will construct a big bowl at the base of the Tenjin Lift and you can test ride next season's models.

Winds are light, temps are warm and there is still plenty of time to get in a few turns before the season is truly finished!

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

Until 5th April
Minakami Kogen Ski Resort
Minakami Hodaigi

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.

Now closed for the season
Oana
Norn Minakami
Okutone Snow Park
White Valley
Minakami Kogen
