Lovely day yesterday. The sun was out and blue skies. Conditions at Yamabiko were very nice.

Good news this morning from Nozawa as our big week (hopefully) continues as we approach the highlight which should be this weekend.

This morning there's an impressive chunk of snow up top - 45cm being reported by the resort from the top Yamabiko area! - and 25cm being reported across the mountain. My measurement this morning was 23cm. So there's a very nice new cover across the resort and we're expecting more... a lot more... between now and Monday. The heaviest snow is still forecast for Friday night and through the weekend.

Very excited about this. Let's see how much I have to report tomorrow morning.

In the meantime, I'm going to wrap up well and head up to that snow... some more courses open now (check the data below).
