Spring is definitely here, and the snow is continuing to retreat really, really fast at base level.

We even have flowers blooming here and there, although interestingly not the cherry blossoms in Joetsu (one of the big three illuminated cherry blossom viewing spots). The cherries outside the house are also still keeping tightly folded, so they're keeping to a schedule and not looking at the weather, I guess.

Some rain last night, which might have helped firm up the snow this morning. To be honest, morning is the best bet for sliding; there’s almost a layer of water on top of the snow in the afternoons, making for very sticky skiing.

This is the last day for family resort Kyukamura RunRun and the much bigger Madarao Kogen; several others will be closing after the weekend, while Seki and Akakura Kanko are going to tough it out as long as there is snow. The weather has stabilized a lot, though; the freezing level should stay at 2000 to 2400 meters for the coming days, although rain is on the forecast for Sunday and beyond. April showers and all that, huh….
