It is a very wintery start to the day with morning temperatures into double digit negatives, even in the village. There is low cloud rolling right down the mountain meaning visibility is limited but this should lift later in the morning. There was a dusting of snow overnight in the village but it was closer to 1mm rather than 1cm. Light snow is on the forecast right through until Sunday, so hopefully we will get some decent accumulation somewhere in there to give us another powder day!

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.
