Yesterday's fresh is today's heavy and wet (still better than ice, though). Pretty high winds through the day, although lifts kept going.

Offpiste it was pretty heavy going today; it wasn't powder and it wasn't spring snow, but something sticky in between. The forecast has things getting colder, with the possibility of rain tonight, turning to snow tomorrow. It seems, at least for the moment, that winter is hanging on in Myoko!

One note (discovered the hard way): the No. 3 lift at Suginohara Ski Area does not run on weekdays; if you want to hike up Mt. Mitahara (a popular backcountry course), be ready for a three-hour or more hike tot eh top. Or wait for the weekend and join the crowds (although the area seems to be doing all it can to discourage people from going out, even up the hill).
