Morning from Nozawa.

Yesterday was an excellent day on the slopes, it really was. I just couldn't stop myself, and was actually a big naughty in being late to a meeting because of my extended riding time. They totally understood though. ;)

Yes, really great conditions up there - it did not feel like the middle of December.

With that snowfall the resort has enjoyed, they are opening up more lifts and courses from today. Details below. The lower slopes are still not open. Note also that the road between Nagasaka Gondola and the Hikage area is now closed. Access to the Hikage area via the 'Yu Road'.

This morning the mountain is still casting shadows over the village but it is a lovely morning and the sun is shining down on the Yamabiko area. Need to get back up there!

Tomorrow should be generally fine too with snow clouds moving back over the region by the end of the day and snow due on Sunday.

Sounds good to me! I hope you can get here for the weekend to enjoy these conditions before things start getting really busy.
