Wasn't sure when I'd update, but about 13cm of new snow at base level on April 8 deserves a mention. And we need to keep our total snowfall for the entire season accurate, right?

SnowJapan's forecast got it right, but it was still weird to watch things get colder through the day, and the rain turn to snow. Pretty strong north winds are still blowing; a few minutes ago the wind really came in with some more new fall (thought it was just the snow in the trees and on the car blowing away, but it was in fact new flakes coming in horizontally. So we have the schizophrenic situation of sunny skies to the south (melting the snow off the roof) and gray skies, snow and wind from the north. Winter wants to fight its way back in; spring is holding firm in the south. But that wind might cause lift closures (meaning the gondola at Akakan, which would close the hill), some at Arai.

We're now officially down to three operating areas, now with some fresh snow on top to make things pretty again. The snowpack was looking pretty grim there after the last rain (amazing what come up to the surface) so it's another nice day.
