Another really sunny day today, and warm as well - not as high as last week, but spring is here.

It was pretty nice yesterday, with that little bit of fresh snow sticking to the trees and making the hills beautifully white. But today the snow is continuing its fast retreat; there's a lot of bare spots out there, if not yet too bad on the mountain.

But, looking at those snow depth figures, things are going to be marginal pretty soon here. We're already seeing some closed courses; Suginohara has only two lifts running, and some runs are out.

I also see at the Japan Meteorological Agency website that there's a dry air advisory for most of Niigata, which is definitely not something we want to see! Just watch that water vapor getting pulled out of the 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.
