Some good news on the weather front here with rain forecast for last night and this morning turning out to be a non-event. It looks as though a small amount of rain did fall overnight but despite a few clouds around this morning, the weather looks pretty good.

Temps are still well above where we'd like them but that looks set to change from sometime this afternoon or early evening.

Snow showers are on the forecast for tomorrow and are set to persist for the duration of the forecast (Thursday). Hopefully some comes through in decent size.

Okutone Snow Park joined the 'closed for the season' list as of yesterday. It's sad to see places closing earlier than planned, but nothing you can do when there's just not enough snow.

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.
