It's a very windy one in Nozawa this morning. The strong winds mean that we have limited operations on the mountain this morning with mainly lower lifts and runs only open.

Temperatures are extremely warm, up to around +14 today as predicted, but crowds are very light.

Today's snow will be slushy from the outset, slow in places. The pick today will be the groomers and park which will be fun and forgiving considering the snow conditions. Off piste runs will be best avoided today unless you are up for a real challenge turning.

Likewise yesterday was also extremely warm but the sunny conditions made for some very nice spring skiing. Up top in the Yamabiko area offered the best turns as did the terrain park and various mogul runs. Yesterday was pretty uncrowded considering it was a Sunday.

Looking at the forecast ahead we should see some improved snow conditions by Thursday when a cold front and light snow looks possible. Until then though it's mostly very warm conditions with rain or overcast skies is likely.
