You certainly couldn't ask for better conditions the next to last weekend of the season - around 30 cm of fresh powder and blinding blue skies. Enjoy it while it lasts. The powder will quickly turn to spring slop if the sun stays out, but for now visibility is super, there's no wind, and the temperature is right around freezing.

Speaking of sloppy, local roads were a slushy mess this morning, although they should dry out fairly quickly in the sun. Watch out for cars with Shinagawa plates and no snow tires driving 30 k/h on Route 18 (a national highway)...

It looks like the cold front is going to stay at least through the weekend. The forecast still calls for snow showers this afternoon and tomorrow, with a bit of sun on Monday and Tuesday before the next big snowfall (I can't believe I'm writing "big snowfall" on March 28) on Wednesday.

Suginohara is operating its #2 Mitahara high speed chair lift along with the gondola for the final weekend of the its season.

Official resort snow depths:

Suginohara:
80cm
Ikenotaira:
85cm
Akakan:
200cm (at top)
Akakura Onsen:
170cm
Madarao:
130cm
Seki Onsen:
260cm
