Good morning.

After a busy long weekend, it's back to a normal weekday and we will likely see the number of people visiting be less from now.

It's a tale of different conditions base to top this morning - light rain here at base, and light snow up top.

There's even 1-5cm of fresh snow being reported by the top parts of the resort this morning.

This time last year a fair few courses were closed by now and the official snow depth at Yamabiko was just 130cm. That it is 385cm as of today just shows how different the situation is this year - and probably just goes to show more than anything how 'not normal' last season really was. I'll look back at numbers in more details to be posted in my last report of the season in early May.

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.
