Morning everyone.

Lots of sunshine yesterday along with milder conditions.

This morning there is a lot of cloud about; can't say I was expecting that. A look at the webcams shows some very limited visibility up on the top Yamabiko area - fairly decent in other areas of the resort at the time of writing. Perhaps we will get to see the sun shine once again today later on.

Today and tomorrow are set to remain relatively mild and fresh snowfall is still due to be here come Monday (and beyond).

I heard rumours that Santa was going to be hitting the slopes at other ski resorts in Japan. Don't believe them, they're not true... because he's here in Nozawa! He can't be in two places at once, can he?! He has already been spotted this morning and apparently he has presents for 100 people who say hi to him.

There is also floodlit nighta at Nozawa planned this evening until 8pm. If you are coming by car use the Number 1 car park - parking during nighta hours is free.
