This is the fifth consecutive day of snow, and this morning there is 9cm of accumulation in the village. Pleasingly it is light dry powder, so it will be a good day on the slopes with all main runs being groomed powder. Sky conditions are broken cloud with large patches of blue sky and sunshine, and little in the way of wind. Tomorrow looks like it will be overcast but the snow is forecast to continue.

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.
