Nice blue sky this morning with some white fluffy clouds here and there. Another fine spring morning, though it is not forecast to be quite as warm today as it has been.

The Hirafu Gondola is closed again today, but will be open for the national holiday tomorrow.

There's not many more chances now this season - 8 days including today, in fact.

Snow melting continues apace.

A fair number of die-hards and people getting in that last slide over the coming week, though I think thoughts of many are turning to spring and summer activities - like rafting. It's good that we have something else to click into right away once the snow sliding stops; if there were nothing it would feel rather empty!
