Morning from Nozawa and yes, we have some fresh snow on the ground.

I am measuring 5cm of fresh here near base, and the resort is reporting up to 25cm of fresh snow up on the open Yamabiko area.

So it should be very nice up there early this morning.

The forecast shows some more snow today on and off, followed by clearer skies tomorrow, more snow on Friday and then some really decent looking snowfall due at the end of the weekend into next week.

It all looks very promising. Expect the resort to open up more lifts and terrain as soon as they can - if the forecast comes off, perhaps next week?

Exciting times.

* Apologies for leaving the Uenotaira quad lift in the 'currently operating' part of the report yesterday - my mistake. Will be extra careful to keep that updated correctly each day. :)
