The very long period of fine sunny weather came to an end with rain for the first time in a while the last few days. The warmth and then rain has hit the remaining snow - in the last 3 days Seki Onsen's (official) snow depth number has decreased from 170cm to 100cm. A bit of drizzle early this morning but cloud on the forecast - as well as some strong winds later in the day.

More cloud and cooler weather tomorrow but finer and warmer weather on the forecast again for the weekend.

While Akakan are still officially open, it seems they are closed today due to 'bad weather' conditions - so back to normal tomorrow if the weather improves. Akakan has also announced that it is also going to be closed next week from 20th-24th April, but back open on Satursday 25th and Sunday 26th April. After that, they might try to remain open longer but it is going to depend on the snow conditions at the time.

Seki Onsen is still apparently planning on being open through until May 10th.

Official resort snow depths @ 16th April 2009:

110cm (at top)
Seki Onsen:

Akakan - open until April 19th, then open on 24th/25th April - after that, dependent on snow conditions;
Seki Onsen - open until May 10th
