Fresh snow!

There has been just a dusting here at base and town level; and the Kagura resort is reporting 5cm or so. It's great to see snow falling of course and it is still falling now lightly. It's very probably going to dry up soon though and the chance of a bit of sun and clearer skies is forecast for later on in the day today.

Definitely been colder the last few days as well and the temperature is right now hovering around 0 degrees.

So this afternoon things should warm up a little and a bit more tomorrow. Expect some sunshine tomorrow. Looks like increasing temperatures will be the pattern over the next week. Still, it's been colder than we expect for early April.

From today, we'll try to keep up-to-date each day with details from each of the resorts that remain open with 'what's open' in terms of lifts and/or courses. See below for that.
