You would have been forgiven for thinking that it was January, not nearly April, last night. It was nice and cold, with flakes of snow gently drifting down and a few stars peeking out (I'm feeling a bit poetic, actually, about this). We probably got only 5cm or so, but once again it has made everything perfectly white. Add on clear blue skies, and, well, you get the idea. I pity the people who must be in an office today.

So with the trees all white, it's even more a shame that the ski areas are only running some of their lifts. I'm told it's because people in the big cities stop thinking about skiing once things get warm locally and stop heading out, but on a year like this it just doesn't make sense.... Sorry for the rant, but you look at the window and see those mountains, and wonder why the slopes aren't just packed with people.

Akakura Onsen: most lifts are running; night skiing has ended
Akakan: Sky Cable Gondola and No. 3 lifts are running
Ikenotaira: Shirakaba Capsule, Ikenotaira Quad and AB Dai 1 lifts

Seki Onsen: You can't stop with 580cm of snow on the ground

Tangram No. 3 and No. 5 lifts open until April 1
