Morning from Nozawa.

It was raining when I got up earlier on but right now it's just cloudy and in fact there's a bit of sun poking through the clouds. The forecast for the region is cloud/rain for the morning and just cloud for the afternoon with a high temperature of around 11 degrees here at base.

A bit colder temperatures are due tomorrow and some forecasts are even showing some light snowfall for the upper areas of the mountain. And perhaps down to base around Wednesday-Thursday in the coming week. Keep an eye on that one to see how it develops.

With the warmth and rain, lower courses have taken more hits in recent days. The resort has said that nighta planned for today, tomorrow and next Saturday has been cancelled.

Course cover on the upper 2/3 of the mountain remains complete and is not a problem at all. Just need to head up high, which most of you probably would be doing anyway!

From Monday 21st March until Friday 25th March, the Yamabiko B Course will be closed to the general public as it is going to be used for a competition event.

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.
