I have more snow to report from Nozawa this morning. There was snowfall during the day yesterday and add that to the numbers posted by the resort this morning and we'll have close to another 50cm on the upper areas of the resort. Deep enough? I actually heard someone last night complain that it was 'too deep'. Not often you hear that in the world is it.

But at the very least another 20+cm right across the mountain, making for always-fresh conditions wherever you choose to ride.

I read this in another report, but it's true --- conditions couldn't be much better than they are. After that slight delay what a fantastic start to the season - can the rest of the season continue on from here in the same way?

Light snow continued to fall into early morning but it has stopped here for now. Still limited visibility out there, but it will likely begin to clear this morning. Will be cold overnight tonight but warm up a bit tomorrow with the expected sunshine.

More snow should be back by New Year though, don't worry!

Wednesday is, of course, New Years Eve and there'll be a few events going on to celebrate and bring in the new year. First of all nighta at the Nagasaka area will be open from 4:30pm until 11:30pm on Wednesday. There'll be sake and hot wine to sample from 11pm until midnight and once the New Year arrives there'll be a firework display. Sounds like fun!
