Morning everyone.

I was a bit shocked - in a good way - to see the resort reporting up to 25cm of fresh snow this morning on the top area of the mountain... not quite as much as that down here at base, but still a fresh blanket of snow which is great to see.

It was snowing just before but has stopped now and there's a few breaks appearing in the clouds. Still, snow is there on the forecast so perhaps changeable conditions for the day today.

I'm off up to Yamabiko! Looks like visibility is limited up there still but I can't resist that fresh snow.

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.
