Japan - Kumamoto: latest snow conditions round-up

JAPAN REPORT Snow depths are dropping quite rapidly in Japan now as the thaw continues to set in. A number of areas were also closed for several days in the latter part of last week as a storm system brought rain to the slopes. Temperatures have tended to be above freezing most of the past week and the thawing has led to fog in places at times and there have also been some windy conditions, closing higher lifts.

A number of the country's smaller centres will be closing this weekend or next, but against that many of the bigger resorts will carry on through to early May. Among them, Niseko (70/300cm / 28/120") has had the full mix of conditions and is warning that the combo has left the avalanche danger high.
