Looks like this will be the last regular daily Now! report from Myoko for this season.

All the resorts except Akakan and Seki are on their last day today; it's not looking like the last two brave players actually will make it to the early-May/Golden Week target, because the snow is really, really going fast. At the base level it's just amazing how quickly the ground has appeared (and the white stuff disappeared). The fuki no to - the bitter sprout, I guess called giant butterbur, which is the first edible plant to appear as soon as the snow disappears - are already too big to use.

So I'll give an announcement when the final-final days are announced, but this crazy season is now pretty much at an end.

And it has been a really-not-great year.

There was good skiing, of course; a lot of overseas visitors still talked about how good the snow was.

For the locals though, we never saw the 'meter-overnight snow for a week nonstop conditions' that are the norm here.

Still we can't complain too much, as I know a lot of other resorts had it much worse, with guide friends who basically had very little work. It's a bit like farming, I guess... we looked at the sky and up the hill a lot more than usual!

Hope we have more normal news strating again, well, before you know it.

Be sure to read through the archive Myoko Now reports... and note that last season I observed a whopping 15.5m of snowfall here at Myoko base. The archives can all be found at the bottom of the report page.
