I seem to be timing my visits to outside of Nozawa well this season - avoiding rainy wet conditions. Not everyone is so lucky of course and we want to avoid wet as much as possible over winter. The official snow depth numbers have taken something of a hit today and very likely conditions out there. Hopefully that was the end of our short blast of spring and we can get back to winter...

On that note I'm glad to report that the rain turned into snow overnight leaving us with 10cm of fresh on upper slopes, though none on lower. It's definitely going to be a case of 'head high' this morning I think.

It is certainly colder this morning and hopefully tomorrow more so again. The forecast looks good for regular snowfall over the coming week (though there's a few umbrella icons in there too). Let's hope it keeps on the colder side of things.

Anyway, cloudy skies at the start of the day and limited visibility on upper slopes by the looks at the webcam images. All lifts back to normal this morning so time to head up to Yamabiko!

Have a fun Saturday.
