Good morning from Grandeco.

It is a chilly morning with another 5cm of fresh snow on the ground so very decent conditions especially when you consider we are nearing the end of March.

It will be fun to ski on the upper courses, especially Lavender A course which is the tree run course.

It is good to hike up to Mt. Nishidaiten with snowshoes now - the snow is harder than during mid-winter, making it easier to climb.

There are some ski resorts in the region that will close after this weekend.

Other ski resort information:

Alts Bandai: already closed
Numajiri: until 26 March
Inawashiro Minero: until 26 March
Urabandai: until 26 March

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.
