The snow is receding rapidly these days and cherry blossoms are out just down the valley in Yubiso village but not yet up here at my place. Translation, it's still pretty cold and raining to boot here this morning.

At Tenjin, the cat track has been closed now for nearly two weeks but up top the lifts will be turning throughout Golden Week and as has been the case since February, elementary school-aged kids are free.

The Minakami Vibes bowl is still in good shape from what I've seen on social media photos and the snow base is a robust 2.5m.

I haven't been up on the mountain in a while so I can't honestly comment on snow quality but I'll take a wild stab in the dark and predict that on the sunny days, it's slushy, and on the cold days, probably slushy too.

Looks like a lot of weather coming in this evening and it's forecast to snow all day tomorrow up top and even down to my place at the base... and just as I'd trundled the snow muncher round the back...

Good weather on Sunday if the meteorologists have it right!
