Hello from Madarao!

And I am happy to report some fresh snow this morning.

Yes, light snow is falling and the resort are reporting 10cm of fresh snow and indeed I am measuring 9cm. Great to see it (of course!)

This snowfall isn't destined to last long beyond early this morning though - probably - with clearer skies expected later and also for tomorrow.

For this morning though, it's time to get outside and mess up that fresh snow!

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.
