The cherry blossoms are blooming in Tokyo, but there is still snow to ride in Urabandai.

At Grandeco this morning the temperatures are a bit cooler than they have been in the past few days which should keep the snow fast. The sun is out again, so bring your sunscreen and be careful not to end up with a sunburn.

All the courses are groomed packed snow warming up to spring conditions. You can still ski from top to bottom on over 4km of vertical terrain. Only the #4 Lift has closed for the season and the Lavender Courses A & B are also closed respectively. Today is the last day for the Lavender #28 course.

The new 50m spring session halfpipe, 7m table top and skate style obstacle park opens today at 10am. It will be continually maintained by the park team over the course of the day and will stay open until 3pm.

The main beginner and intermediate park area are also still open and freshly groomed.

There might be some rain over the weekend, particularly later on Sunday and Monday.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 April but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected.
