Well as you know we were hoping for more of the mountain to be open today but unfortunately nature has it's own ideas and strong winds on the upper areas of the mountain is messing around with the plans... so it's only lower parts that are open this morning unfortunately. It doesn't feel windy at all down here really, but there you go. Not the best of news for enthusitastic people turning up and of course there's less snow on the lower slopes.

Anyway, while it is a very mild start to the day in Nozawa, at least is isn't raining! There is a fair amount of cloud up there but there's some blue sky as well and the sun is shining at the moment. A high of around 8C is forecast for the early afternoon.

Tomorrow should not be as warm as today but there is a chance of that rain still, hopefully not at all but if anything snow would be nice higher up on the mountain. Less wind as well meaning we should be back to the planned operations for the day.

Winter looks set to return on Tuesday night with some decent snowfall currently promised on the forecast.
