We're now into the last few days of this season and the weather has been very mild over the last week with temps reaching up into the low 20's one day. This coming week will continue with mostly fine and mild weather with temps in the mid to high teens. The snow has been retreating quite rapidly and the thin strip of snow at the bottom of Hirafu allowing people to ski out to the base is now very thin indeed. There is still a good cover up higher on the mountain of between 1.5 and 2m.
We're now into Golden Week which is just about the biggest holiday of the year in Japan and it's pretty busy around town and up on the hill. The holiday finishes on Wednesday and that will also be the last day the lifts operate.
There will be one final Now report of this season when I'll wrap up the season that was.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 200cm
Bottom - 5cm

Top - 150cm
Bottom - 30cm
