Kind of a nasty start to the day today, with pea-soup fog and rain.

It's getting a little colder now, and the rain has at least turned to small hail (should we call that snow?), and the sun is even trying to come out.

One of the area webcams also showed blue skies higher up, so it might be that we have unkai, the sea of clouds, higher up. That happens miserable at base, sunny, clouds stretching out in all directions below and usually great views of the mountains in every direction. Ya just never know.

Looks like it will in fact turn to a little bit of snow as the freezing level comes down, so perhaps even a better Monday to end up this three-day holiday weekend.

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.
