Japan - Kumamoto: latest snow conditions round-up

JAPAN REPORT After a few small re-openings after Japan eased a second-peak lockdown in late May, we are now back to just one area open in the country, Gassan (500/500cm / 200/200"). This has re-opened as of last weekend, after being closed for much of May; however, skiers from neighbouring provinces area not to visit yet due to travel restrictions created by the need for pandemic prevention measures.

Temperatures are fairly extreme for skiing with temperatures more than 20 degrees above freezing but clear blue skies. The base is thawing fast with the heat and has now lost 4 metres (160 inches) of depth over two months having started its season with around 9 metres (30 feet) at the start of April. But with less than two months of the planned summer ski season left it may make it through to July.
