Fluffy pow falling out the sky here since last night though its coming in a little light at the moment. Accumulation is 15cm at the base of Tenjin and just a little more reported up top so a good start and its forecast to intensify this afternoon and this evening.

Nothing warms my cockles more than a mid-week pow fest in March and one day storms are great but 5 day storms are significantly better! Apart from the truckloads of fresh snow forecast for this weekend, Yubiso park will be hosting the annual Yuki Matsuri which is free and geared toward small children.

Work to commence today on shaping the giant mounds of snow into Anpanman and various other fun stuff.

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.
