Good morning.

As forecast, after a mild yesterday it is colder this morning and there has been some fresh snow. I was out of Hakuba last night so I can't report first hand on what happened there - but I am happy to see some snow this morning.

Not a huge amount - around 2cm - and resorts reporting between that and up to 10cm at higher elevations but hopefully we will see more falling today and tomorrow and indeed the snow clouds are due to be on hand right through until Friday so it will be interesting to see what we can get out of them.

Looks like some restricted visibility out on the slopes early morning - close to white-out in some places. Take care out there.

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.
