Good morning from Grandeco.

The stars were out last night - as well as lots of dancers in the ski centre restaurant! - and there is no fresh snowfall to report.

It is a chilly but calm morning. Snow conditions are very soft so shouldn't hurt if you fall down!

All courses except Lavender A are perfectly groomed and ready and waiting to get tracked up by eager skiers and boarders.

It is also a good day to hike up to Mt. Nishidaiten with snowshoes. To hike up to the mountain, please buy 4 single tickets to get on the gondola and No.4 lift.

Enjoy your Sunday!

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.
