It's blue skies and sun this morning at Grandeco. There was no recorded snow last night, but the base still holds at a solid 2 meters.

With no new snow in the forecast for the coming week (and as we get into April, new snow of course being less likely) today might be a good time to enjoy what's left.

The wind is next to none today and temperatures are expected to warm up throughout the course of the morning.

All the courses are groomed packed snow, which should warm up to spring conditions before noon.

The Junior Olympic Mogul Team is competing today on the Lavender 28 course and its free to view. The event starts at 9:30am with the qualifying round and finals for Women's starting at 1:55pm. This is the 15th Annual National Mogul event and the first time it has been held in Fukushima Prefecture.

The Snow Park team is finishing off the new 50m spring session halfpipe, flat table top and skate style obstacle park. This is scheduled to open on the 1st of April. The main beginner and intermediate park area is still open and freshly groomed.

Roads up to Deco this morning are fairly clear, but please come prepared.

Ski resorts around Mt. Bandai are announcing their planned closing dates:

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until today.

After 27th, resorts that remain open in the region will be Grandeco, Nekoma and Minowa.

Nekoma will be closed between 19th-21st and 26th-28 Apr but these resorts all plan to be open until 5th May ---- but whether they can do that or not will totally depend on the snow levels of course, which are less than usual and less than expected. We'll just have to see how things develop over the coming weeks.

The following resorts are now closed:

Listel Ski Fantasia
Numajiri
Inawashiro resort
Inawashiro
Minero
