There has been a a nice top up of snow overnight with around 10cm at the top of the mountain and 3cm at base. The new snow is very supportive and the upper mountain is kising nicely while the lower mountain is quite frosty underfoot. From halfway to the top was covered in early morning valley fog. This is lifting now and the day is light overcast with the sun penetrating the thin layer of high cloud.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into 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.
