Good morning from Naeba everybody.

Excellent news as we have woken up this morning to snow instead of the predicted rain. It's currently snowing pretty hard although not all that much has accumulated just yet.

Conditions on piste today are soft and powdery!

Currently, the weather forecast is predicting big snow from now until Tuesday with a clear day on Wednesday. We do have rain predicted for Thursday but as today has proven it is no guaranteed to be rain! Could be the snow kind!

Powder Surprise!

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.
