Morning from Nozawa.

Light snowfall this morning with the resort reporting 5cm across the mountain since yesterday.

What about this storm, I hear you ask. Well, snow is forecast for the day today as well as tomorrow and indeed actually through until at least the weekend. So we should be getting regular fresh snowfall. How much? I'll just let you know each day as the various forecasts just don't seem to be particularly reliable at the moment and often say different things. It does look most likely that we will see the heaviest snowfall here in Nozawa around tomorrow night and into Wednesday. It's still tagged as 'heavy snow', so fingers crossed. I'm saving my thoughts until we see what happens over the next few days!

I'll update you tomorrow morning with the latest.
