Temperatures have been warmer in Nozawa the last few days and no major snowfalls have developed as yet. Yesterday just as I finished writing the report the snow stopped and we didn't get much at all overnight. Light snow has been falling this morning and we should get a bit more tonight.

Tomorrow is looking fairly clear then a bit of snow expected Sunday night when the freezing level is set to drop down to below sea level. The snow show should kick in from Tuesday night with some serious snow expected after that.

Just in time for the Chinese New Year with quite a few guests from overseas expected to roll into town from today.
The good luck has already started for one young couple that got engaged on the top of Yamabiko yesterday. We have had quite a few proposals in Nozawa over the years - not sure if it is the mountains, the flowing water or the flowing sake but something sets the scene perfectly. We wish the happy couple all the best.

Today there was another light dusting up top and condition on piste were good, off piste too. Just the sides were getting a bit crusty. The guys are still finding lots of fun spots all over the mountain! It has just started to snow pretty big flakes out the window now.

Gong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Chinese New Year from all in Nozawa Onsen.
