EVENING UPDATE:

The resort has announced it's intention to open up more lifts and courses from tomorrow. The Uenotaira four quad lift and the Skyline connecting pair lift will join in the fun tomorrow. Courses that will additionally be open as well as what we have had until now will be the Uenotaira course area and the Kokenashi A and B courses. That brings it to a total of 10,100m skiable area according to the statistics.

Further updates coming in the report tomorrow morning.

MORNING REPORT - 9:35AM:

No new snow to report from Nozawa - both top and base - and perhaps surprisingly the sun is out this morning.

The news of the day though is that the Gondola isn't moving, with the resort telling us the reason is strong winds. Only a light wind here in the village this morning, but that's one of the things about Nozawa.... there's often a big difference in what is happening at base and what's going on up at the top of the mountain.

Fine conditions up there yesterday though. Can't wait fore more of the mountain to open. No word yet but hopefully if the snow that is due to fall overnight turns up, we might have news (and action) on that in the morning.

The forecast for the weekend is snow with cold temperatures.
