Cloudy early this morning but for the past hour or so, winds have been coming in from the North and its alternating between rain and snow. Temps are well above zero at the base and Tenjin resort recorded 0 degrees at 9am so quality up top is going to be questionable but there is quite a bit of precipitation about.

Clear weather forecast for tomorrow and it would be nice to see some Sun as its been a week. Tuesday night they've bumped up the expected snowfall and looks like it could come in some size followed by lighter snow in the following days... Cold temps too, just pinching myself when I look at the calendar these days!

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.
