Probably the last report of the season with Tenjindaira set to close on Monday, April 11th. Unprecedented early finish and there is still plenty of snow up top but the writing is certainly on the wall up here in the mountains after a lean snow year.

Rode the Minakami Vibes bowl on Wednesday and it is still in excellent shape and should remain so throughout the weekend.

Very windy here this morning after lots of rain yesterday.

Weather for the weekend looking good and regarding those forecasts, apparently we can expect La Nina this Winter which is supposedly colder than usual... that sounds good to me!

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.
