Very mild temps continued over the weekend and this morning there was a little rain at lower levels with a dusting of wet snow up high on the mountain. Snowdepths down on the plains around Kutchan are down to an average of 50cm but areas exposed to direct sun are starting to become bare with sasa grass starting to come back through. On the mountain the cover is still top to bottom with no bare patches yet on the main runs but I'd expect a few to start opening up over the coming week in exposed high traffic areas. We'll see how well the groomers manage moving the snow around.

The outlook is for continued mild and mostly fine weather.

Niseko Village and Hanazono are now closed although Niseko Village will reopen for Golden Week. Looks like Hirafu Gondola may only operate on weekends from now on as well. The Spring park has now opened up on skiers right of the Ace #3 on the Shirakaba course. Perfect place to play around and break something at the end of the season.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 325cm
Bottom - 120cm

Niseko Village:
Top - 330cm
Bottom - 100cm

Annupuri:
Top - 330cm
Bottom - 155cm
