It had to end sometime! After the great conditions over the past couple of days, you would have been well within your rights to expect more of the same today. Unfortunately the weather today is rather wet and foggy, and with mercury on the rise it looks as if spring might finally be on it's way and signalling an end to the 2011-12 season. In terms of snowfall and winter-like weather anyway.

The last day of operations at Hanazono (planned for today) is actually a non-event at the moment with all of the lifts closed over on that side of the mountain due to the weather conditions, and at the time of writing only the Ace Quad appears to be the moving at Hirafu.

Over at the Annupuri area the Gondola, Jumbo No1 and Jumbo No3 lifts are currently operating.

The Niseko Village resort area is closed from today, but they do plan to open up again from Sunday 29th April until Sunday 6th May.

Today would appear to be a spring cleaning day for many.... or maybe a spot of whitewater rafting!
