Cold overnight temperatures mean the slopes are skiing nice and firmly without being icy, or at the other extreme...slushy. The snow conditions are sitting nicely in between those two extremes. The day is mostly cloudy with a few large patches of blue sky appearing, but in the main it is a greyish day. Today is the grande finale for the Kitanomine Zone and night skiing. Kitanomine Zone closes for the season from 4pm today, and from tomorrow it will be the Furano Zone only. Night skiing has finished for 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.
