What a beautiful morning it is here in Nozawa.

No new snow overnight but yesterday the resort was reporting 10-20cm of fresh snowfall during the daytime as it did continue to snow after my report was posted.

And the webcams show some very enticing images of the upper mountain this morning. I think I need to get out myself this morning once my report is posted. It should be a fun one.

It might be fine and sunny just now, but snow is forecast to start falling again sometime this afternoon and continue into tomorrow afternoon.

Big picture - we're still low on snow of course and with a lot of folk arriving here to enjoy New Year things are getting busier; the more snow tonight the better.

(Obviously!)

Fingers crossed. In the meantime, have a great day.

Oh by the way, Challenge 39 and Kitsune courses are now open. Skyline - not yet.

I am updating the details below with each report, so keep an eye on that info.
