The last day of lift operations at Akakan today, and it's going to be a great day. Should be really warm, lots of sun, and, yes, good snow to ski on. There is a dry air advisory, so be sure to keep hydrated (beer may or may not count, depending on your reference source).

Seki Onsen is scheduled to keep going until the 10th, but no official news has been posted by the resort since mid-April.

Backcountry: excellent conditions and lots of snow. In fact, it's nice that it's warmed up; corn snow time!

It's been a great season, and it's been fun to report on the changes in the snowpack (especially when we had good powder to report, and that happened a lot!). Looking forward to next season—and the cool, beautiful Myoko summer, too.

Lift operations:

Akakan: Sky Cable gondola, No. 3 lift

Seki Onsen: open (one lift)


Current Official Snow Depths:

Akakan (Akakura Kanko):
55cm

Seki Onsen:
350cm (not updated for some time, so figure under one meter, and that only in secluded spots)
