It is another warm day with the thermometer showing +7c in the village at 8am. The skies are not as pretty today with a thin layer of cloud high up, but other than that conditions are nice and clear. Strong winds could be heard in the early hours of the morning but have since passed and there is only a slight breeze now. Conditions on the slopes should be quite soft and spring like from mid mountain down, and perhaps a little firmer on the upper half.

The forecast for Saturday is showing some light rain from morning through to afternoon. Sunday will be a return to colder temperatures below freezing.

Just a reminder that this is the last weekend of the season for the Kitanomine Zone. The last day of operation will be Monday 21 March. The Furano Zone will continue operating from 22 March through until the tentative closing date of 5 May.

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.
