A cool and cloudy day up north with rain forecast for later in the day which should fall as snow on the upper mountain at first as a warm front approaches the island. In the wake of the front things will warm up a little and rain should fall at all levels through tomorrow.

The snow cover is still top to bottom but some patches are opening up on the lowest slopes. Up high though in Hirafu there is still over 3m on the ground so there's still plenty of snow to see out the remainder of the season.

Out on the plains around the mountain there is still a thin cover of snow on most of the fields above 150m. Where farmers have put in a fair bit of effort some fields are mostly clear of snow now. All areas around the coast and below 150m are now mostly free of snow.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 315
Bottom - 90

Niseko Village:
No longer reporting snow depth

Top - 260
Bottom - 70
