It's spring vacation time and the lines stretched around the block yesterday as students lined up to buy lift tickets. It was one of those days in the mountains when all you only had to wait a bit if the weather didn't suit you - it shifted from sunny to snowing all day. Overnight, 20 cm of fresh powder and the beech and birch branches are frosted white this morning. The season's not over yet.

Route 18 was wet, but not icy this earlier morning and should be drying out by now. The section between Myokokogen and Nakago was temporarily closed due to an accident. Off 18 and up toward the mountain roads are packed with 15 to 20 cm of snow, which will turn slushy if the sun stays out.

The forecast for the week ahead is still calling for light snow daily through Sunday at least and snow showers Monday, so it looks like conditions will be fairly good the next to last weekend of this season. This morning should offer some good, if crowded, runs as temperatures are below freezing under mostly sunny skies around the area. Looks like northwesterlies and more snow on the way this afternoon.

Official resort snow depths:
