Hello from Hakuba.

No fresh snow to report this morning but it's a chilly start and it looks like we should be enjoying some fine weather conditions today. At the moment it's a mix of grret and white cloud and blue sky.

And indeed generally calm and fine weather expected through Monday (maybe with a bit of snow here and there on mountain). Let's hope it keeps fairly cold.

Monday is a national holiday in Japan - expect popular places to be busy... early start recommended!

Some lifts may be open until early May (more on that soon), but the days are flying by - we need to enjoy it while we can.

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.
