Morning everyone from here in Hakuba.

No fresh snow to report from base though a few resorts are reporting a few cm higher up (see individual info below).

It's another cold morning but the snow clouds have gone for now. There is some cloud still around but there is a lot of blue sky above Hakuba this morning. The mountains are looking very enticing. I wonder if the clouds will clear up today... the local forecast for today is generally cloudy, perhaps even some slight snow later on, but the forecast for tomorrow is clear from the start; looks like it could be a real beauty!

Temperatures are forecast to get a bit warm Thursday and Friday and while snow is due Friday, there might be some rain before it (at lower elevations anyway). A bit of a concern but in the meantime today and tomorrow should be great if you can get here to enjoy it.

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.
