Another sunny day, and it looks like it could get pretty warm, with the freezing line moving high up the hill (but then we have snow forecast for Friday, so who knows this year?).

Still lots of snow, and lots of good skiing out there.

I heard some good reports from people heading off-piste who found some good soft snow on north faces.

Lots of closings starting from tomorrow, but at least three areas are holding on at least until the 9th, or even on into May. Planned closing dates added below.

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.
