Some snow overnight, one inch down at my place and 5cm on the mountain.

Winds are hectic up top at Tenjin and they have the Takakura and Toge lifts shut for now but the cat track is open so not a bad day for some hot laps.

Forecast is still for snow right through Sunday night and its very lightly snowing outside right now with moderate winds from the North down in the valley.

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
There will be a break in the Minakami updates until further notice - in the meantime please keep an eye on the weather forecast page. Thank you.
