A good old heavy dump of Nozawa snow is always wonderful to witness and the last 48 hours or so has really delivered. Heavy snow yesterday following on from the overnight snow with 20-35cm of additional snowfall being reported by the skijo across the mountain. Just totting up the numbers...

Yamabiko - 88cm
Uenotaira - 63cm
Hikage - 66cm
Nagasaka - 56cm
Karasawa - 50cm

Including the few cm or so overnight, that's 85cm in 2 days for the top runs as reported by the resort. :)

It's always great to get a decent amount down at village level as well, it really adds to the excitement.

Some of the weekend crowds may not have appreciated the snow conditions, but this morning will surely be one for everyone. We have clearer skies this morning, the sun is already starting up and it looks like it will be a fine day. Sorry, make that an awesome day. And regular readers will know that SnowJapan doesn't like hyperbole in it's reports --- I just reckon that today should be one of the days of the season.

What's more, snow is on the way again by the end of the day and I should be reporting more in my next report.

Anyway it's time for me to get kitted out and see if it does actually deliver. See you tomorrow.
