Hello from Nozawa.

It's not good, I'm afraid. Apart from it again being way too warm this morning, it's raining and strong winds are messing around with lift operations (if people were still interested in using the lifts!)

And after that decent snowfall that we enjoyed last week as well. :(

According to the resort it was +8C and raining up on the top Yamabiko as of 7:15am and they've wiped off a chunk from the official snow depth numbers as well.

Poor weather conditions mean that top lifts and the Nagasaka Gondola are on hold at the start of the day. Looks like the Hikage Gondola is moving. See below for more.

I really don't like writing these things, but you want the absolute truth right? I just so so wish I could be bringing you regular reports of deep snow like I usually can, it makes me really sad that I can't...

Trying to forget the 'right now', let's look at the forecast.

It's looking quite promising actually with a sudden drop in temperatures due tomorrow and hopefully snow falling by the time I get up to write my report Monday morning. And after that, snow clouds should be over us or nearby and giving us fresh snow on Tuesday and Wednesday as well. So things could be back on in a few days time once again.

What a really strange season. Hopefully it'll be 'unique'! I'll take an 'average' season over this one any day.
