It is snowing this morning at Grandeco and there has been an accumulation of 1cm of new snow since last night. Based on the weather forecast it looks like it will remain cloudy and snowing for the duration of the day though there's some blue sky up there as well at times.

The wind is not very strong this morning, but the air is a bit colder than it has been over the past few days.

All the courses are freshly groomed packed snow/core with a very light mix of new snow from what fell over the past 24 hours.

The Snow Park is working on a full renewal in the coming days with plans for a 50m spring session halfpipe in the works. Stay tuned for more details.

This snowfall seems like it might continue through tomorrow. Saturday is expected to be cloudy with the skies turning blue and the weather warming up for Sunday.

For now roads up to Deco are pretty much clear, but be sure to come prepared just in case. Have fun and be safe out there.

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

After 27th, resorts that remain open in the region will be Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21th and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.

The following resorts are now closed:

Listel Ski Fantasia
Numajiri
Inawashiro resort
Inawashiro
Minero

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
