It's cloudy this morning again at Grandeco with patches of blue skies and sun. There was no recorded snow last night, but the base still holds at a solid 2 meters. There is no new snow in the forecast for the coming week so this weekend might be a good time to enjoy what's left.

The wind is mild again this morning, but cold with temperatures expected to stay below zero throughout the course of the day. All the courses are groomed packed snow and core.

The Junior Olympic Mogul Team is practicing for an upcoming contest being held this coming Sunday, so the Lavender 28 course area in now open only to participants until further notice.

The Snow Park team is still working on a renewal in the coming days - scheduled to open on the 1st of April.

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

Alts Bandai / Urabandai ski resorts - until 27th March.

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
