Well the snow had to stop eventually. The sunny weather was definitely appreciated yesterday, but it does mean there is no new snow to report today.
It is not all doom and gloom however, with 80cm in the past week, cool temperatures, and typically small March crowds there will still be great snow on most aspects. Don`t pack up the powder skis just yet!
The current cloud cover is due to clear during the morning, we could have another stunning day on our hands. Temperatures remain around -10c at the peak, but expect this to rise when the sun comes out.
The next few days see a high pressure ridge developing over Hokkaido with light to calm winds and settled weather into the week.

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.
