Good morning from... Tokyo.

Sorry, I'm not in Nozawa this morning so going off reports from a friend and a bit of help from the webcams. And happily, it's an easy morning to report with the sun out and lovely blue skies. It's going to be a fine day and also warming up into the low 20s as well. Sounds like a feel-good morning.

There seems to be a bit of rain on the forecast for tomorrow morning but after that things look like they'll be settled for the main chunk of Golden Week coming up.

Nozawa Onsen will be open until Sunday 7th May.

8 days to go!

Lower slopes are now mostly bare but upper slopes still have an official snow depth of over 2m and excellent snow cover.

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.
