Morning from Nozawa.

And what a really great morning it promises to be.

With close on 30cm more fresh snow on the ground and sun shining down on the slopes (well, the upper areas - still some morning low cloud in lower areas but that should clear up)...

...we couldn't really be asking for much more at the moment.

It's 18th December and pretty much most of the courses are now open - that is really great to be reporting. Yet to open is just the Challenge 39; Mukobayashi, Hachiman, Kamoshika and Tanuki (and we can perhaps expect some of them to be opening soon, they are being checked this morning); as well as Kandahar.

From now on in my reports (below) I will be mentioning which lifts and courses are not open - rather than what is open.

More snowfall is due tomorrow. And more sunshine after that as we approach the weekend.
