No new snow has fallen in the last 12 hours. It looks gray upper mountain but bluebird is forecast today. The mountain might be frozen in early morning but will be soft after 10 am.

Today is the last day of Japanese business and school year. Most Japanese schools and companies start new semester and business year on the 1st of April. This snow report ends for this season, too. Thank you for reading!! I would like to leave the last words quote from Niseko Avalanche report.

”Good snow is where you find it”
Enjoy the rest of your  season and see you next time!!
