I have a feeling this will be the last report of the season, apart from when I let you know when the last resorts finally do close. Had a great day in the Myoko backcountry yesterday, but even up high you can look down into the tree wells and see that the ground is just not the far down. Barely made it out over a snow bridge on a stream at the bottom; another few days and it could be a lot trickier to get out. But from up high we could really see why, for example, Ikenotaira was only running one lift for the park. There just isn't enough snow. Lots of open patches, and with the wind being pretty steady from the south today, too, it's just going to disappear faster.

So I'll post when something changes; at this point Akakan and Lotte Arai are scheduled to keep going, but it just doesn't seem likely (and we really have to wonder about Arai posting over three meters of snow depth; maybe there's a spot up high where the snow piles up, but I know from those who've been there that the ground is showing here and there; the bottom run is already closed).

Some light rain is falling from time to time, more coming in the afternoon, and frankly we could use it! It's getting pretty dry, apart from where the melting snow is moistening things.
