Good morning from Nozawa and it looks like it is going to be a beauty.

Blue skies above the remaining low early morning clouds, and all of that snow that we had over the weekend as well. Once again the resort is reporting a good 50cm of snow on the upper slopes and a decent amount down below as well. All of a sudden the snow depth up on Yamabiko is 130cm.

Excellent stuff and after the delay in opening things are now suddenly looking much more exciting. See how quickly things can change!

Anyway today we are going to be treated to lovely conditions this morning with perhaps cloud moving in this afternoon. It should be keeping cold.

Unfortunately there's a good chance that rain is going to spoil things a bit tomorrow - down at lower levels anyway - but the good news is that it should once again be snowing by the time I port my report on Wednesday.

In the meantime today should be a lot of fun for those lucky enough to be able to try it out.
