Rain it is then. Or it was, as it is holding off at the moment though we do have rain forecast today. It has been cooler as well the last few days and right now about 10C in the Maruike area. For the weekend there's more of a chance of seeing the sun, but there will always be the possibility of some rain showers both on Saturday and Sunday. As you can see on the snow depth numbers, the snow is quickly getting less now and really thin on the ground in lots of lower areas now... for example some bare patches of ground are now visible on the slopes of Ichinose Family. It won't be long now before it disappears, but we can probably make it through the weekend as planned, or just about.

From Monday, only parts of Kumanoyu and Yokoteyama will remain open. I'll post another report then with a roundup of news.

Have a fun second half of Golden Week. Fingers crossed we get some decent weather for this weekend.
