[This report was written this morning but posted late due to a technical issue earlier on]

Morning from Nozawa.

It's another of those days when we have a fair amount of fresh snow up top (25cm on the top slopes) but hardly anything down below. Snow high, rain low. While that is far from ideal, there should be some very nice conditions on the higher slopes this morning. And while it's cloudy early, it looks like it could be clearing up for the daytime. Watch out for probably mild conditions during the day today, tomorrow should be colder.

The forecast is still looking excellent for the coming week. Lighter snow perhaps tomorrow and Thursday with the "main event" (sustained heavy snowfall, hopefully) due from Friday and through the weekend. Don't let us down, nature!

A follow up to the message we posted yesterday

Just wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who sent us messages of support and comments following the message that we posted on the report pages yesterday.

It was really encouraging to read all the sincere comments that we have received. And from so many people as well. Must admit, we were a bit shocked at the response! We really appreciate it.

Some people asked what they can do to help us. Probably the biggest help is to simply let other people know about SnowJapan and what we do. Either by just telling friends who might be interested, or by posting a link to any page within SnowJapan.com (links are a big help; no need to ask). While we are already highly discoverable on these here internets, believe it or not there are still folk out there who haven’t found us! ;)

Again, thank you very much for your comments and support and sorry that we can’t reply to them all individually.
