It's a mostly fine morning here in Nozawa Onsen today. We have some high altitude cirrus clouds passing overhead that tend to preceded frontal systems. This correlates with the forecast; we expect snow showers to move through later this afternoon and tonight.

Riding this morning will be on classic spring snow; firm in the morning and softening by midday. South facing slopes may become sticky as the sun intensifies. Like yesterday the best riding will be had in the Yamabiko area.

It's a good day to practice in the park and pipe with the soft forgiving conditions. Likewise mogul runs are as good as they can get in these kinds of conditions. Selected off piste gullies may still hold the occasional powder field, although will be heavy going.

Light winds, few people, sunshine, perfect views yesterday.

Looking at the extended forecast we should see another clear day tomorrow before a warming trend takes hold.

Unfortunately very warm temperatures and possibly heavy rain are predicted at the same time on Monday, not a good combination - we can just hope that the forecast backs off. The warmth is set to remain until Wednesday night when there's a chance of light snow showers and colder temperatures - not expecting anything major though.
