Hello from Zao Onsen.

Nice spring weather to enjoy this weekend.

Lots of fresh looking green now down at base with no snow to be seen but there's still a bit of snow up there on the upper areas. It is looking a bit --- dirty --- and won't be lasting much longer though, but we'll manage through until Monday if you want one last slide of the season. (Forecasts are showing the chance of some rain on Monday).

Last report of the season with a general message due on Monday.
