Good morning from Grandeco.

There was no snowfall last night but the snow condition is not icy - good conditions for March. Grandeco hopes to continue to be open for the ski season until early May.

Here's some info on planned closing dates of nearby ski resorts:

Alts Bandai - until 20 March
Urabandai, Inawashiro Minero, Numajiri - until 26 March

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.
