It's a bluebird day for the last day of the main season; it stayed cold overnight, although the sun is likely to warm things up. The snow has hung on great, and it's nice and white—not a lot of the Gobi desert sands to mae things off-yellow.

The word that comes to mind is mottai nai—it's a shame, really. People will rush to a tiny strip of artificial snow at the beginning of the season, but here we are at the end of the season with some really good snow and nice weather, and the season could easily keep going for a week or more, but the resorts are closing earlier and earlier because people just don't come in enough numbers. Walking around last night felt more wintery than late February did!

Anyway, Akakan and Seki are going to remain open until May, they say. Come support spring skiing!

The official snow reports aren't in yet this morning, but figure some loss since yesterday (probably not that much, though, as the temperatures stayed pretty cold).

Lift operations:

Akakura Onsen: Ginrei No. 3 and No. 5; Kumado No. 3 Quad, No. 4 Triple; Yodel Super Quad; Akakura Chuo Triple. Kumado No. 3 open for night skiing (5 to 10 p.m.). Last day today.

Akakan: all open (officially, although the Champion B course, and lift, were closed today)

Ikenotaira: Shirakaba Capsule Ikenotaira Quad, Alpen Blick No. 1. Last day today.

Seki Onsen: open (one lift)
