Good morning from Naeba everybody.

Well rain was predicted for today and a small amount has fallen however it looks at the moment like we may get lucky and nowhere near as much rain as was predicted will actually end up falling.

Temperatures are spring like warm out there at the moment and caution should currently be exercised due to the thin snow pack in some areas. The main slopes are still good to ride on but if you go too far off the sides expect to be grass skiing.

The weather going on is supposed to be rain today turning to snow by tomorrow then after that we should have light snow with some occasional rain mixed in all the way until Thursday.

Tonight there's a big fireworks event as part of Naeba Snow Festival. At 20:15 there will be a torchlight ski procession and at 20:20 they will let off the biggest fireworks display of the season.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
