It's been a while since our last update; not much has changed except the depth of the snowpack! Akakan and Seki both have some runs open, the weather has remained cool to cold (we even had some snowfall as late as last weekend) and it looks like some good weather into Golden Week. So why not come and ski? Spring skiing is always fun; the snow is soft and there's a party mood out there.

Backcountry has been really good, apart from fresh snow turnign to death crust at times (a kick-turn descent was recently experienced by yours truly). The season should hang on very well, so a good time for hut tours and other general exploring.


Lift operations:

Akakan: Sky Cable gondola, No. 3 lift

Seki Onsen: open (one lift)


Current Official Snow Depths:

Akakan (Akakura Kanko):
95cm

Seki Onsen:
350cm (not updated for some time, so figure less than two meters, and that only in secluded spots)
