Good morning from Naeba everybody.

Hot, hot, hot! It is definitely going to be a hot one today. With temperatures already just shy of going above freezing I would be dressing with minimal layers of clothing and maximum layers of sun cream today.

Conditions will be nice and smooth and soft to start with. However, as the temperature rises the slopes will get slushy and bumpy today. Excellent for practicing your fore-aft positioning!

The forecast is currently predicting rain right now turning into snow later on. Currently, the rain has not yet turned up although with the cloud that we have this could happen. Fingers crossed this doesn't show up. After today a mixture of snow showers and sometimes rain showers is predicted.

Chunky!

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.
