It was good to see some snow falling properly and its been like Winter again with minus temperatures and icicles stuck to the car. Cold up in the alpine today with our weather station reading -12.5 at 2080m and snow is forecast from the early afternoon continuing through to tomorrow morning.

Still some decent runs to be had with Goryu's top slopes nicely groomed and 47 well-manicured as always. Happo has been a mixed bag of moguls but when they get the groomers out there's lots of good times to be had hitting the corduroy and cat tracks and jumping the dirt patches. Might have even been a bit of fresh snow this morning...

Over at individual resorts:

Lower slopes at Happo, Iwatake, Norikura and Tsugaike are now closed due to the lack of snow at lower areas.

Over at Goryu, a number of courses at Iimori are now closed and the Snow Park closed on the 24th for the season. Iimori is planning for the remaining areas to be open until Tuesday 31st March.

Nighta at the Toomi area of Goryu is now closed for the season (and perhaps optimistically they are saying that if conditions improve then they might re-open!)

We'll bring you more news of when resorts plan to be open soon...
