Good morning from Shiga Kogen.

Great news!

Yes, 12cm of fresh snow on the ground and the official report is saying 15cm. Both sound good to me.

When we get to this stage of the season, the middle of March, you always start to wonder if this snow will be the last snow of the season. I was actually a bit surprised to see that we got 90cm during March last year (50cm this year so far) and some snowfall in April too - last season the last snow I reported was on 12th April, so there you go. I certainly hope so. Here's to more snowfall!

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.
