At the moment we have some overcast conditions in Nozawa Onsen. There were some very light flurries down in the village earlier, but these seem to have stopped for the time being. As expected, we received only very light snowfall, with just a dusting being recorded overnight. Temperatures are cool with -4C at the summit and just above freezing in the village.

Groomed runs will be good with firm and fast conditions lasting all day. The trees will be better than yesterday, although icy with the freeze thaw conditions we had recently. It's pretty quiet on the mountain considering today is a Saturday. That's late March for you...

Poor visibility up on the top courses of the the resort as we approach noon.

Yesterday was good in the morning, but intense spring sunshine heated the snowpack more than expected. Off and on piste were both decent early on, but by the afternoon became very slow, especially at lower elevations. It seems the best runs are to be had in the morning at the moment with conditions after lunch generally slushy.

Looking at the current predictions we should see the weather gradually clear through this afternoon. Tomorrow will be partly cloudy and warmer than today. Monday we expected light snowfall perhaps and cold temperatures beginning sometime around lunchtime.
