It's a bit wet this morning but I'm happy to report that the sleet from just before seems to be turning into snow, albeit of the wet variety. Upper slopes got 5cm of new snow overnight and it is snowing there still and the forecast is for snow through the day today and also tomorrow, so hopefully it's the start of some new decent cm.

Next week from Tuesday it seems that clear skies are on the way for Christmas and so we want/need as much snow to fall in the next few days as possible.

No word as yet on any further lifts moving for the weekend. Monday is a national holiday in Japan and so it's a long weekend. Resorts around Japan are going to want to be as fully open as is possible, Nozawa being no different.

We can expect a fair few people to be here as well, so an early start is recommended.
