Sleet at the base of Tenjin and wettish snow up top this morning.

Forecast to continue all day and through the night when some Northerly winds will come in and probably lay down some nice snow. That's the plan anyway.

No wind right now but just a bit warm at the base for things to get going.

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.
PLEASE NOTE
The fresh snowfall number being reported on this report is taken from the ‘base area’ of Tenjindaira - which is just by the top station of the Ropeway at that resort. Other snowfall numbers and commentary will be mentioned within each report when available.
