It's a very snowy morning in Nozawa.

30cm of new snowfall down below and more than 50cm up top taking into account the 10cm or so yesterday, and it continues to fall now. The lower slopes were reporting 30cm early this morning with another 10cm on top of that as of 10:30am.

So this is more like it!

It's not that cold really at base currently just over zero, with the top Yamabiko runs recording a -6C temperature mid morning. So get wrapped up and put on those googles because it's a cold morning up there with limited visibility. Similar conditions forecast for tomorrow.

This nice new snowfall is good timing too with this long weekend and lots of people around to enjoy the place. Well, I suppose you could have asked for it just before the long weekend, but let's not complain.

So more snow tomorrow, though some forecasts have it down as clearer. So we'll just have to see how that turns out. Forecasts are agreed on clearer weather for mid week though, with snow returning for the weekend.

Oh yes, other good news. Skyline is now open and it looks like the Karasawa quad is scheduled to be open but I can't confirm that right now. Great to see Skyline open though. Which means that Nozawa is now close to being full open.

I haven't been out this morning but conditions should be excellent out on the mountain.
