Original report:

Good morning from Madarao.

It is 31st March and that means that it is the last day of the 2019-2020 season at both Madarao and the connecting Tangram Ski Circus.

The sun is out and it should be a good way to finish up.

Given the rather odd nature of this winter season - not just here, but in Japan generally - I think that Madarao and Tangram have done really well. We are actually finishing the season with decent snow cover. That is something that at times seemed... rather unlikely. So well done, and thank you for the good times.

This is my last report of the 2019-2020 season.

If you don't mind, let me just make comment on my two wishes:

- that the world can get sorted out quickly (meaning as quickly as possible) and we all stay safe
- that we can enjoy a 'normal' season from December 2020

Right now, 'normal' sounds amazing.

And it is.

Perhaps we will appreciate 'normal' all the more.

More snow than usual that gets us all super excited is always welcome, but so is 'normal'.

In the meantime, I want to thank you for reading. Please take care. And let's meet again refreshed, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed later in the year.

Bye!
