Good morning from Nozawa.

Them there snow clouds did indeed visit us yesterday after that fine start and by 3pm the resort was reporting 4-7cm of snow on the upper areas of the resort with a few cm lower down and this morning the total snowfall reported by Nozawa is headlined by the 27cm at top Yamabiko and just over 10cm at base. So a nice new layer this morning.

Some low cloud aside, the clouds have dispersed again and blue skies are above the mountain. It is looking likely that today and tomorrow will be all about sun and while it's cold this morning over the next few days temperatures are going to be rising towards a high on Saturday. The next snowfall is due Saturday night but before that there looks to be a chance of rain - particular at lower elevations. Fingers crossed we can miss that and it just gets colder and starts snowing.

In the meantime, a very fine few days ahead. Let's Nozawa!
