It doesn't seem that long ago when I was starting up these reports for the season... but here I am wrapping them up on the last day of the season.

The sun is out this morning, there's still great snow cover, all courses are open and it should be a good last day. (The only thing that might spoil things is the fairly strong wind at times...)

I think most people would agree that it has been something of an odd season - not only here but in many surrounding areas as well. It somehow didn't seem to be as consistent as we are used to - though it's worth reminding ourselves of very high standards that we often expect and often get here!

There were many fine powder days though and I have some very fine memories of hitting the powder in those tree runs. It's always sad to think how long it will be before I can do that again.

The warm up will continue now and no doubt the snow will quickly start disappearing from the mountain. It's shocking how fast it does start to go once we get into April!

Of course Madarao is a fine place to be when there's no snow around as well - beautiful all year round and nice and cool in those hot summer months. There's usually a number of events going on as well which are worth looking up. (Get to the Madarao website via the links on Madarao Kogen resort page that is linked to from here).

Anyway, thank you for reading the Madarao Now reports this year, and I hope to see you in the run up to next season!
