It's snowing down in the village at Nozawa Onsen this morning! Light falls commenced in the early hours and have gradually increased in intensity producing a heavy dusting since then.

5cm of new snowfall reported by the resort on the upper slopes of the resort this morning.

As expected, the temperatures are marginal this morning; the village is currently at 0C. With -5C up top, the snow should improve in quality around the higher reaches of the resort. The temperatures should continue to drop throughout the day as snowfalls persist.

Yesterday was a very busy day on the mountain- the gondola lines were impressive during the morning rush. Today looks like crowds will be slightly less based on the amount of cars arriving to the village during the morning.

Warm temperatures yesterday meant the snow was spring-like in quality, but still fun to ride in. During the evening a low level fog moved up the valley and the village was cloaked within a matter of minutes. In combination with the fire festival preparations, it made for an atmospheric experience.

The logs were carried through the town yesterday and today should see the construction of the tower. Well worth a look for tired skiers and boarders taking break.

Nozawa Onsen is set for it's Fire Festival tomorrow!

The current forecast looks good for snowfalls throughout Japan, especially the 17th and 18th. After today's falls have subsided we should see a clear day on Wednesday, before a classic NW winter flow becomes established delivering a potentially sizeable dump.
