Yesterday saw a major melt go on around the village with snow on roofs disappearing at a fast rate and footpaths turning to slush. The slush was still there late last night with water streaming down the streets. Overnight it did freeze but morning temperatures were already well above 0c. Spring skiing is here today! There is a moderate breeze blowing in the village but it doesnt feel at all cold.

There is some possibility of very light showers today in the afternoon. Tomorrow will be even warmer than today. The good news is that the rain forecast for Friday evening is now much less than the forecast was previously showing.

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.
