Morning from Hakuba.

It was a mix of cloud and clearer conditions yesterday - with one minute limited visibility and light snow, and the next the sun shining. All depends on where you chose to be. I enjoyed some very fine conditions out there and felt there was more fresh than the resorts were reporting early morning. Really very nice conditions for late March though, for sure.

Resorts don't seem to be reporting any fresh snowfall this morning, other than the 5cm from Hakuba Cortina.

This morning some cloud still around but lots of blue sky.

Last chance for Happo-one nighta this evening.

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.
