This is perhaps the latest snow report I have ever written; as I mentioned yesterday, there was a big race at Akakan and I got called in (my civic duty, right?). And, to be honest, it’s what we predicted: spring snow; warm; the snow is melting. And it’s pretty nice out there. Heard a lot of happy voices across the hill as I was watching the gates at the race.

These are the official figures for today, but note that the temperatures through the day are way above this (my outside thermometer is saying 20+°, which could be a little high). But it was cold enough overnight to really firm up the snow. It was pretty hard for the first turns very early this morning, but it softened up pretty quickly. Looks like this is going to keep on through the week, with the freezing level at or above 2500 meters right through Friday.

One lift notice: today is the last day for the No. 3 lift at Suginohara, which is often used for backcountry access.
