A good surprise this morning. Temperatures remain mild but the resort is reporting 20-35cm of fresh snow across the mountain this morning so fresh to play in.

Might get a bit more this morning but it will likely ease and tomorrow we're expecting sunshine. And warmer conditions. Then on Sunday... warmer conditions again. With a good chance of rain. Yikes, that doesn't sound so good. If you are hitting Nozawa one day this weekend I'd definitely be choosing Saturday myself.

As we get into next week, it should start to get colder again though for now not a whole lot of snow on the forecast.

Oh yes, if you are interested in snowfall numbers recorded on all these reports, do take a look at the new page that SnowJapan has put online:

Very interesting stuff!
