Sun yesterday; sun today. March is the first month of spring, right? (even though the forecast says we might get a heavy snow Monday into Tuesday... rhat would be fun!).

Kind of interesting how the temperatures reported by the areas are all over the place today; that sun is warm, but the air temperature actually is not so high. Yet. Let's see what happens as the freezing line once again heads up the mountain.

The same pattern we've seen this season is repeating again: freezing line moves up, we see a little rain, the freezing line comes down and it all turns to snow.

We can use the snow off the areas; it was a great day for snowshoeing yesterday, but pretty tricky for the sliding people — crust, powder, slush, ski-catchingly sticky was all out there. Not surprising when it's really not spring skiing yet, but not really powder time any more.

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.
