Good morning from Nozawa Onsen.

There's lots of cloud this morning but thankfully the rain has eased off. Was pretty heavy at times yesterday. Is that even a dusting of snow I can see on the trees on the upper areas? It's certainly keeping pretty cold.

We might get to see some sunshine today if the forecasts are right, though it's not going to warm up much beyond 10 degrees even at base.

Planned lift opening times for the upcoming last part of the season have been updated - see below.

For the moment you can still ski back down to Isemiya near Hikage, but if you wish to get back up top you need to get a (free) bus over to the Gondola base station. Fresh, white, soft and deep is not how I would describe the conditions of the remaining snow near base at the moment, so you might well prefer to take the Gondola back down!

Nozawa Onsen will be open until Sunday 7th May.

11 days to go!

Upper slopes still with an official snow depth of over 2m.
