Good morning from Niseko.

There's some thing high cloud giving proceedings a hazy feel early on this morning, but it's fairly bright and (kind-of) sunny.

Going to be mild too.

Sun and warmth is what is expected tomorrow as well.

Full on spring now, folks, if there was any lingering doubts remaining!

I have done some re-arranging of the resort-specific information below and will do my best to keep up to date on any changes. Gambarimasu!

Check out one of the webcam images below and you'll see some 'let's get rid of this pesky snow' operations in progress. Once we get to this stage of the season you see a lot of that. Farmers in particular are keen to get going with their thing so the sooner the snow disappears the better.

Of course we'd prefer that lots remains on the slopes.

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.
