Hello and good morning from Nozawa.

Perhaps a little unexpected but it's a bright and sunny morning - up top anyway! There's a sea of cloud hovering low down this morning which is making things a bit more gloomy on lower areas but I would expect those clouds to disappear this morning and the sun to shine on base as well.

Yesterday of course we enjoyed some fresh snowfall. Not a huge amount and it never really got sustained 'full on' snowfall, but there is a new layer (10cm on Yamabiko) which is fingers crossed going to be supplemented tonight with some decent snowfall expected as we enter the weekend. Sunday-Monday is also still looking very promising. Enough of the promise, results please!

As Monday is a national holiday in Japan, this coming weekend is traditionally one of the more popular weekends of the season. The resort will be starting their lifts 30 minutes earlier than usual tomorrow, Sunday and on Monday as well. So the Gondolas will start spinning from 8:10am and the base lifts from 8am.

Here's to a great fresh-snow filled weekend.

---

A competition is being held on the Yunomine A course from today through Monday meaning that course will be closed to the public during that period.
