Quite unstable weather over the last week with lots of rain which did fall as snow at times on the upper mountain. It's really taken it's toll though on the lower slopes with the last little drop down into Hirafu starting to get very patchy. There's still a very good cover a little higher up though.

This weekend sees the start of the Golden Week holiday period and the last week of lift operation for this season. More lifts will be operational over the week and I believe the Niseko Village area will reopen a couple of lifts as well. The Spring park beside the Ace #3 lift is in good condition and will likely be pretty busy, especially over the weekend. A few restaurants and bars will also reopen for the holiday.

With all the rain and snow melt the Shiribeshi river is all but bursting it's banks at the moment so the rafting will be quite exciting. Probably more exciting than the rain affected slush up on the mountain!
