It's another lovely morning in Nozawa. Light winds, clear skies and still plenty of fresh snow on offer. Great day for a ski or board!

No new snowfall to report this morning. The best riding will be had on the upper slopes where continual below freezing temperatures have maintained excellent snow quality, with the odd powder stash. Groomed runs will be silky smooth and remain that way as the day draws on. Lower pistes will be firm and fast early, becoming slushy around lunch.

Reports suggest that the spectacular cherry blossoms are coming out in Tokyo at the moment, a sight well worth checking out. Not here though yet of course.

Yesterday was perhaps one of the best this March, or at least the past few weeks. Windblown powder stashes that were fairly deep at times in the gullies were on offer. Not many people out there once again combined with cold temperatures ensured the powder remained in good condition and provided fresh tracks well into the afternoon.

We expect further snow to fall overnight tonight up top and again on Monday. In the mix well also expect some cool sunny weather on Sunday. It's nice to have a prolonged period of cooler weather forecast after the very warm conditions we have experience for much of March so far.
