A bit of a delay since my last report, but yesterday's weather was nothing to write about - rain, wind, etc...

Today, though is a very lovely day with fair skies, warmth, lots of snow and even a pretty good turnout of cars in the Akakan parking lot. Looking toward the weekend, Ikenotaira will be opening up again this weekend, and going on through the Golden Week period.

For backcountry fans, the snow is great; we went up to Mt. Hiuchi at the end of last week and found really good conditions on the mountain, and for the descent back to Sasagamine at the western base. The road is open all the way to the parking lot/summer climbing path, so that, too, should be very good for Golden Week and beyond.

The wind and rain did bring down the snowpack, but it's almost May, and there's still a lot out there.

Akakan: Sky Cable Gondola and No 3 lift, through to May
Seki Onsen: Open through May
Ikenotaira: Will open from April 28 to May 6
