There was some new snow on the ground this morning. Earlier on clouds were close to the top of the resort, but they have moved higher and have broken up, and it is now mostly clear sky with sunshine. There is a light breeze coming and going. Warm temperatures mean the mountain is spring snow conditions from top to bottom. At the moment the snow is just slightly soft and not slushy, so the skiing is very good.

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.
