It's the start of a new weekend and a long one - probably will be a popular one too... and the fine weather will help on that score.

Yes, it's fine blue skies and sunshine here in Madarao this morning.

Fairly chilly early on but it should be warming up a bit in the sun, and snow conditions will go from icy early on and soften up as well most likely.

Nighta tonight and tomorrow night (and then one more time next Saturday).

There's just 16 more days of the season left to go here including today.

Madarao Kogen plans to be open until Sunday 2nd April.

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.
