Similar day today to the last few days. Partly cloudy and mild. We are expecting the approaching low pressure system to start affecting us later in the day though with the passage of a warm front bringing some rain. The low will move towards the NE fairly rapidly though and as it does a cold front will cross the island bringing colder air and snow over the weekend.
Strong winds are starting to pick up already preceeding the front and higher lifts in Grand Hirafu are on wind hold including the Hirafu Gondola.

As we head into April obviously the chances of more snow drop off considerably and overall there will be little to report beyond the ongoing Spring melt so the reports may not be updated every day later in the month. I intend to keep up regular reporting for at least the next week and probably the week after.
