And.... more blue skies and sunshine on this last morning of March. What a month it has been!

Fairly low temps overnight and so perhaps some icy conditions at the start of the day but it should soften up pretty sharpish.

The sunny conditions will continue into early next week. From Monday, we will be left with just Happo-one, Goryu, 47 and Tsugaike Kogen open and they will all battle on intending to remain open until early May.
