Good morning to you all from here in Hakuba.

Fabulous day on the slopes yesterday with that good layer of fresh snow to play in, and I am hearing some excited reports from people going backcountry... talk of up to 60cm out there.

Very nice!

This morning just a bit more snow being reported from mostly upper resort areas, just a bit outside here.

Still conditions should remain very nice for the start of the weekend and while there is still quite a bit of cloud around there's an increasing amount of blue sky and the sun is out. Less cloud as the morning goes on I reckon and it is going to be a fine day and importantly not like it is going to warm up too much.

More fine sunny weather is on the forecast for tomorrow though it will be getting a bit warmer.

Just check out the forecast too... some good potential around mid-week.

Have a fun Saturday wherever you may be.

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.
