It's a quite dull start to the day here, with overcast skies. Not warming up again too much, and a moderate wind.

Hirafu have the Ace 3 lift running this morning but the top King 4 lift is not moving at the moment - due to the wind. The other two areas seem to be open as planned for the moment.

Snow continues to melt away leaving more and more ground on show on the lower slopes in particular. Tomorrow is the last day of the season. Always sad to see the snow go, but we've had a long season and no doubt in another 5 months we'll be raring to go again.

I'll be wrapping things up tomorrow in my last report for the 13/14 season (which may be a bit later than usual).
