Good morning from Grandeco.

Beautiful blue skies this morning.

It is a very (relatively) warm morning too. The snow depth will take a hit with the temperatures today for sure.

The Gondola and No.3 lift are moving and 85% of course is open in Grandeco.

One more ski hill that is open in this area is Nekoma. The Oguni No.1B lift in Nekoma is moving from 5:55 (exactly!) during the Golden Week (until 7 May). It's good to feel the early morning snow condition, if you can get up early enough!

It is warm today so many people will be out enjoying the skiing wearing short sleeves, but don't forget to protect your elbows and skin from injury and the strong sunshine too.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily until the end, some will become less than daily now that we are in 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.
