This is it folks --- the last day of the 2016/2017 season here in Madarao.

And what a beauty of a morning it is too. Check out the image below.

It is going to be a fun day and no doubt pretty sad come this evening too. In terms of snow, there could surely be another week or two of life in the season. But the resort plans this to be the last day, so that's it.

The official snow depth on this last day of the season is 250cm and the mountain really is in excellent shape when you consider it is early April.

I have had a really great season and from what I can tell when speaking to people on the lifts, so have a lot of visitors. And there have been more of them from overseas this season too - indeed this season there has been another large increase in people reading my reports. Thank you!

I'm going to enjoy a few lie-ins this coming week, and then perhaps get out to Nozawa and Shiga Kogen for a bit more skiing. as they are open into May.

So thank you very much for reading the Madarao Now reports on SnowJapan this year. I hope they have been a help.

SnowJapan intends to post a general 'end-of-season' report on all of the Now reports when all of the reports finish in early May

At that time I will also add some Madarao-specific comments as a wrap-up to the season.

So do come back!

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.
