Sorry about the really late report but I spent the day up on the hill, got back had a shower and then promptly fell asleep on the couch!
Anyway what a great day it was. Up around another 10-15cm of snow since last report had fallen and first thing this morning there were powder turns to be had all over the mountain. Again not the really light, fluffy stuff of mid winter but about as good as you could expect in April. Mid morning they also opened up the peak for the first time in a few days and the walk up was rewarded with some excellent quality snow. There were a few snow showers through the day but overall it was mostly fine with plenty of sunny breaks.

Today was the last day of lift operations for Hanazono and Niseko Village. Although looks like Niseko Village intend to reopen for Golden Week. From tomorrow only Annupuri and Hirafu will be operational still and then with reduced lifts running mid week.
It was pretty busy on the hill today as well with plenty of day trippers from Sapporo coming down to enjoy the great conditions on the last day of full operations for the entire mountain.
