Just a quick check-in before the weekend; the snow levels are falling, of course, but we also received between 3-5cm of fresh over the past few days! It's pretty cold, too (check this morning's official temps), so it's staying unseasonably white (even while the willows start to bloom).

It's backcountry tour time, and this fresh snow will 1. cover up cracks and 2. certainly result in slow, soft-snow avalanches on steeps, especially when it warms up over the weekend. Keep an open eye, watch your partners, and things should be really good.

Only a few runs at Akakan and Seki are open. There's still lots of snow, though, so enjoy while you can!


Lift operations:

Akakan: Sky Cable gondola, No. 3 lift (one more may be open over the weekend.

Seki Onsen: open (one lift)


Current Official Snow Depths:

Akakan (Akakura Kanko):
150cm

Seki Onsen:
380cm
