Sunny yesterday, but not too warm.

The trees remained white all through the day (looked more like ice than snow up in the branches, but it was pretty!). Not too bad snow off of the piste, too, my contacts tell me. I’ll check for myself this morning.

But we can see the end of the season coming soon; I’ll post closing dates next week, and some predictions, too (can Akakan actually stay open until Golden Week?)

But one last surprise might be coming: national broadcaster NHK says there’s a chance of heavy snow on Wednesday... it ain’t over until it’s over...
