Just a quick early update with the latest news.

The northern Nagano region has experienced some strong jolts early this morning from around 4am - including Nozawa - and the resort has just announced that the resort will not be opening today as they make checks and everyone catches their breath. From what I can tell early on there is no serious damage to report or injuries.

We very much hope that everyone both in Nozawa and elsewhere in Japan affected by this are all ok.

Update:

After a day closed and checking resort facilities today, Nozawa has announced that they plan to be open tomorrow. The resort won't be fully open but they plan to have the following lifts operating:

Karasawa pair lift;
Nagasaka (Gondola) connecting pair lift;
Nagasaka Four lift;
Nagasaka Triple lift;
Higake Triple lift;
Higake No2 Pair lift;
Shinyu Pair lift;
Utopia Pair lift;
Yuu Road.

A special lift ticket price of 3,500 yen for adults and 2,500 yen for children (special price for the limited operations tomorrow) will be available.

It seems that the local earthquake that we experienced here has actually caused some damage to some local facilities, including one of the Gondolas at the ski resort.
