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”
