Original report:

Post-season (sort of) update

** Please also see this main last report of the season **

A little last-minute information for anyone still in the area (or those interested in what's going on in Myoko).

First: snow.

Nine (9) centimeters overnight, and it's still falling very lightly. Just in time for the cherry blossoms down just a little lower (I doubt the snow is falling in greater Myoko City, at 300 meters or below).

And the final word on the last two resorts that are still operating.

Seki Onsen says it will be open this coming weekend, which is the first definite word from them for a while (I really wasn't sure if they were really open over the last few weeks, since they are no longer in the city's official website, and their own site is, ah, distinctly their own). After that? I doubt they can keep going.

And Lotte Arai has announced that, due to the corona virus, the 12th will be their last day of operations. If it's anything over there like it is here at the Akakura Kanko Hotel, things are slow.... We wondered if city folk would be fleeing to the clean, microbe-free are of the mountains, but don't look like it.

So there is the official, final word, and we can actually close out this wild season. With snow.
