Lower areas only open this morning due to windy conditions on the mountain.

As this snowstorm continues to make headlines in Japan, we keep getting more snow, but the strong winds mean that only the lower Hikage and Nagasaka runs are able to open. In some seasons, the resort would have to be totally closed as there wouldn't be enough snow down at base but not this time round. Different set of lifts moving this morning so it's a bit of a different 'look' to Nozawa.

The resort is reporting 43cm of fresh snowfall at top Yamabiko, 40cm on Uenotaira and 70cm on Nagasaka. Interesting numbers there! There's what we had yesterdaty as well to add to that. Just thing... lots.

Check out the official snow depths. Yamabiko - 270cm. Uenotaira - 250cm. Nagasaka - 200cm. It's only mid December! Sugoi.

Snow, possibly heavy snow, wind and cold conditions still forecast for the day today. It should clear up by morning though leaving us with sunny conditions tomorrow.

Top conditions ahead!
