Morning from Madarao.

A kind of overcast feel to the start of the day here. Snow overnight has stopped (not much on the ground) and we're in that overcast mode. Looks like the sun might be trying to break through.

There's still some snowfall here and there on the forecast in the coming week, so we might get more still. Would be great if we could get regular refreshes right up until the end of the season.

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.
