Well... Easter Snowfall for Niseko today and the models have further late season goodness to fall up high for the next 4 days. 9-10cm new fell up top and 5cm in village last night as West Jetstream and quite a decent low pressure cell delivers perhaps the last decent drop for this season. Up top at present has a base of 280cm with around 50cm down low.
Rusutsu lifts spun for their last day yesterday and Hanazono lifts are now closed. From now till the 6th of May we'll be down to limited lifts across the remaining 3 areas with enough lifts to get you from base to top for Hirafu, Niseko Village and Annupuri.
The Avalanche report via the Lads at Moiwa have now finished for this winter as well. Many thanks to all those involved for their wise words and information.
At this stage ..the remaining few lifts will run to Wednesday May 6th. This will depend on snow pack and ..World Events.
