Good morning from Nozawa.

It's good to be back to winter this morning after the mild and unfortunately wet day that we had yesterday. The wind calmed down enough for the Nagasaka Gondola, Uenotaira quad and Skyline connecting lifts to open in the afternoon. But not the best of days... but quickly forgotten with 20cm or so on the ground this morning.

It's interesting to see the snow reports from the resort this morning. 40cm at Yamabiko (top), 30cm at Uenotaira, 20cm at Hikage and 10cm the lowest reading from Karasawa base. So 10-40cm, bottom-top.

Most lifts are back to normal as well today though at the time of writing it does look like the Uenotaira and Paradise quad lifts are on hold due the weather.

Snow is still falling here and is forecast for the day, clearing up later with cloud (or possible fine clearer weather) lined up on the forecast for tomorrow.

I'm heading up to Yamabiko. Perhaps see a few of you up there.
