It is a bit of a wet morning at Kiroro. The warm temperatures (+4°C at the base) have resulted in the current precipitation falling as rain instead of snow. The good news is it is expected to become colder during the day as the moderate south westerly wind swings more northerly and we are expecting to see snowfall in the area by the end of the day.

Fingers are crossed the forecast snow arrives and we have a return to winter over the next week.

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.
