After rain on Monday and high winds on Tuesday, it was a lovely sunny one today.

The current state of play is that 47 is still open top to bottom with only the forest detour courses and the halfpipe closed. Goryu is still ridable to the bottom, but not for much longer. The top with stay open till May 5. None of the bottom Goryu lifts are going. The bottom runs at Happo are closed, but things are still fine higher up. Access is by the gondola or the Sakka Quad. At 2,500 yen, the cheapest place to ride is Tsugaike, which is also open till May 5.

The temperature looks set to drop at the weekend, so we may see the runs firming up one more time. Some of the weather forecasts even have the snowmen out again. With possible rain or sleet, backcountry prospects don't look so good.

Over at Tateyama, the Alpen Route and the various huts are now open. It can still get very cold up there if you're thinking of camping. There is a "ski bus" going that allows you to do some touring-style runs on the Toyama side without having to hike back up, but the longer runs apparently require a lot of traversing.
