It is a nice warm day with light cloud cover blocking the direct rays of the sun. In the morning the snow was firm and skiing nicely, and then softening up as the day went on. The skiing is still really good and trails from the top of the resort to base are still open. On the lower third of the mountain the snow cover is starting to recede and expose the ground. Hopefully the snow will last for another week? The forecast for the next few days is light rain in the village but the possibility of fresh snow at the top.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
