Good morning from Nozawa Onsen.

Yesterday after that fine sunny start to the day it quick quickly became overcast/cloudy and there was a bit of wind as well. There's still not that many people out on the mountain, so there have been nice conditions to be found.

After some rain and wet conditions last night, I'm happy to say that this morning light snow has started falling. It's still rather wet in consistency down here, but hopefully - and probably - of a better quality up on the mountain.

The top Yamabiko areas of Nozawa are reporting 10cm of fresh snowfall overnight and an additonal 5cm as of 10am this morning.

Snow is forecast for the rest of today and into tomorrow when it should get colder still. Might have to look out for wind again, but for the moment all of the lifts on the mountain appear to be moving as planned.

Looking at the forecasts, snow clouds should not be far away Sunday through Tuesday but nothing significant likely. A good snow storm might be breweing for New Year though so we'll keep an eye on that one.

I was just taking a look back at the Nozawa Now reports and the official snow depth numbers from this time last year. Yamabiko was reporting 205cm, Uenotaira 180cm and Hikage was on 140cm. Today those numbers are 185cm, 150cm and 75cm respectively, which kind of confirms that we don't have as much snow as this time last year, especially on the lower slopes. It is fairly noticeable that there's less snow down at base at the moment. Nothing to get worried about of course, there's still plenty of snow, we're just not into that fun crazy snow mode yet. It's always fun when that happens and I have no doubt that we'll get there.
