Hello from Nozawa on this Friday morning.

It's a bit wet at the moment but thankfully the local forecast seems to be predicting it'll be short-lived.

Actually the official site has snow falling on the top Yamabiko runs though the webcam at the time of writing looks more like rain (below). Perhaps it was snowing just before (that was posted at 8am) and it has changed. Certainly looks like it's poor visibility up there with thick fog conditions.

The Nagasaka Gondola and top Yamabiko quads are open as normal this morning. More open for the coming weekend... see below for more details.

For those coming this weekend we're expecting sunny skies tomorrow and maybe Sunday too before it starts to cloud over later in the day.
