The weather alternated between rain and sleet all afternoon yesterday, accompanied by fog, before finally turning into the forecast snow at evening. Around 20 to 30 cm fell overnight and snow is still coming down at the moment. At this point it doesn't look like the sun will be coming out today and some lifts are stopped now due to high winds, but at least the pistes are powdery.

Area roads were sloppy from sleet below the mountain and slippery from packed snow in the resort area.

Higher temperatures are still forecast for the weekend, with sunshine tomorrow followed by cloudy weather on Saturday and Sunday, so perhaps the powder will last through the final weekend. Enjoy!

Akakan plans to stay open until May 6, depending on snow conditions.

We will be making occasional updates to this page for this last month or so of the season.
