Well spring is certainly in the air with warmish mornings and warmer days. The ice pack covering the roads has receeded to reveal the colour of tar seal that hasnt been visible for months. It is a nice spring morning with blue skies and plenty of sun. Temperatures have been well below freezing overnight so the snow will be firm on piste and slowly softening as the day rolls on. There is a very slight breeze which this is expected to pick up in the afternoon.

This evening the resort should get a light dusting of snow. Temperatures will be warm, and by warm I mean above 0c through until Saturday, and then on Sunday they will drop back into the negatives.

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.
