A mostly cloudy day today and very mild with temperatures up near 8 degrees this afternoon at the base of the mountain. Conditions on the mountain are typical Spring conditions being fairly hard packed and icy first thing in the morning and turning to slush as the day progresses. It's best to stay on the lower slopes first thing in the morning as they soften up first and then head high later as the base area becomes very slushy.
Very little precipitation forecast now for the rest of this week. A bit of rain later tomorrow which is then expected to turn to snow overnight and that's about it.

From today the Hirafu ski area has commenced reducing the number of lifts running mid week. Important to note is that the Hirafu Gondola will now only run on weekends.
I'm pretty sure that today is the last day of lift operations at Hanazono for the season.
Niseko Village will have their last day of lift operation tomorrow but will then reopen from 29 April to 5 May for Golden Week.
Annupuri as far as I can tell will run pretty much as normal right up to the end of the season.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 320
Bottom - 160

Niseko Village:
Top - 320
Bottom - 110

Annupuri:
Top - 335
Bottom - 180
