Well, this will most likely be our last ski hill report until next season, unless one of the resorts decides to change their minds and open back up... not likely though.

We may still update some Hakuba/mountain information from time to time for all of you Hakuba/mountain lovers.

As for all the skiers and boarders who have been watching our reports all winter, a big THANKS out to you all! We look forward to bringing you the daily Hakuba resort report again next season and hope it will be just as interesting a season as this one... huge dumps of snow in December through mid January, a very strange late January through February with every element you can imagine including rain, winds, warm temps, cold temps. And finally, snowing quite frequently again in March through much of April, 30~50 cm of new snow April 22nd at the top of the resorts!

All in all, a great season of skiing/ boarding with many face shots and powder memories. One last report for you below. In the meantime, until next season, have a great time whatever you are doing this Summer. Maybe even see you up here for some of Hakuba's fantastic summer inter activities like mountain biking, canoeing, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, hiking, etc... Cheers!

Todays report: not a whole lot of snow left, but not as little as you may imagine, quite substantial in certain areas!

Only 47 resort is open today and will have all lifts open and skiing to the bottom! through Sunday 5/14.

Goryu will also open for the last time for it's skiers this Saturday and Sunday.

Happo will be on summer schedule from this coming Monday and will run their Gondola and upper Alpen and Grat Lifts. Summer lift prices; Gondola round trip: 1600 yen; one way: 860 yeb. Alpen and Grat lifts will be 270 yen per ride-one way.

Tsugaike will be on summer schedule from May 20th. Gondola and Ropeway will be a set price of 3000 yen round trip.

*AVALANCHE DANGER remains MODERATE*

Continue to be cautious of Surfice Springs slides and remember that now more than before we can expect more Slides to the ground and from old week layers around ice layers. Continue to use good route finding skills and common sense while touring to all those lines you have been scoping all season.
