After a little blast of winter, spring is back in action.

As forecast, the clouds cleared around midday and the temperature shot up. The snow of solar aspects became heavy and slushy, with a overnight refreeze expect a substantial crust on this aspects. The snow on North facing aspects remained lighter and shouldn`t have much of a crust.

It is bluebird again this morning with cool temperatures and light winds. Expect the temperature to rise quickly, getting above 0 at the base by lunch time. With light winds all day, it is a great day to work on your sun tan!

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.
