The official spring post-season has arrived with blue skies and high winds. Yesterday we had rain and high winds, so it's a nice change.

It looks like a great day to be out on the snow, in fact, and too bad that some of the resorts are now closed for the season.

It's been a strange one, to be honest. It looked like we'd lose most of our snow a couple of times throughout the season, with warm weather, wind and rain, but then the snow always seemed to come back. There was good powder out there, for sure; it just never seemed very 'Myoko-y' (meaning days of snow falling so heavy you can't see).

Lots more international visitors this season, and they seemed to come from all over. Lots of Europeans - which surprised the locals - lots of Australians, of course, and no real troubles at all. Many people told me that they came here because they really wanted to visit Japan and enjoy the culture, not just ski (but they did want good deep snow, of course). Maybe that's why people were pretty respectful, friendly and nice. So a lot of change for us here, but not unpleasant change.

We also had a lot more people getting into trouble by skiing where they shouldn't, and it wasn't all the imports doing it, either. Plenty of Japanese riding off course and into the wrong places. I hope more people learn that sidecountry really is backcountry, in that you can get killed in an avalanche just off the lifts as easily as way out in the hills. Trees are just as hard, too.

Anyway, a kind of strange season, but a good one, and it's not completely over yet (see below).

We'll keep the page updated every now and again for the rest of the season
