Japan - Kyoto: latest snow conditions round-up

JAPAN The season is winding down in Japan too, of course. Most of the country's smaller, lower areas have now closed until next winter. Some of the big names will remain open through to the first weekend in May though. Niseko (60/290cm) is one, at least it's Grand Hirafu area, but conditions haven't been great the past few days with rain and fog but no fresh snow.

Gassan's famous Tsukiyama Ski Area, in northern Japan's Yamagata Prefecture, opened for its ski season at the weekend, immediately posting the world's deepest snow depth at 10 metres (33.3 feet). Normally open for 3 months to mid-July, subject to snow conditions, it was closed on Monday due to a whiteout.
