Good morning from Nozawa and it's a cloudy one today. It's not as warm today but over the last few days we have had some warm conditions and there has been a quick retreat of the snowline with lots of ground on show now on the lower slopes. I'd say it's half/half snow/ground on show just at the base of the gondola now - if you take a look at the webcams in the Webcam Center you will see.... It's always interesting just how fast the snow melts away when it gets thinner on the ground, though only to be expected of course.

So, Golden Week starts tomorrow. A 3 day weekend and then next weekend a '4 day weekend' (sort of), starting on Thursday. And the last 9 days of the season. A few more lifts operating for this last run of days as noted below and there will probably be a fair few people in Nozawa to enjoy a last chance slide of the season.

Clear, sunny conditions are forecast for the weekend and it should be nice and warm as well.
