The last couple of days have been cold, cloudy and wet at lower altitudes with snow falling higher up. Today though the sun is out and it will be a great day on the mountain.
The snowdepth, especially up high has remained pretty stable up around 3m. The average snowdepth at the top in Hirafu at the end of April over the last 13 seasons is 2.15m. So it looks like we'll probably remain well above that average.
With the rain over the last couple of days some of the fields around Kutchan are starting to show patches of soil so it shouldn't be too much longer now before the farmers can start sowing their crops.

Current Official Snow Depths:

Grand Hirafu:
Top - 300
Bottom - 95

Annupuri:
Top - 295
Bottom - 110
