Good morning from Urabandai.

It is a beautiful morning with blue skies and a gentle wind.

It was a bit stormy day yesterday with snow falling on and off and a strong wind blowing at times.

Luckily there is 4cm of new snow at Grandeco and the temps are keeping cold so snow conditions are soft, not icy. Even in late March, Urabandai area still has a lot of snow on the slopes and some fresh too - but there is less than usual.

Grandeco and Nekoma will remain open as long as there is enough snow. Usually they can be open until early May, but that will likely be difficult this year. Still, looking good for the moment.

Alts Bandai, Urabandai and Inawashiro resorts are now closed for the season but I will keep reporting until the last day of the winter season from here in Urabandai.

The photos for today are from Nekoma (the first two) and Grandeco.
