Nozawa was hoping to be able to open tomorrow for the season but as you might have guessed that just isn't going to happen. While there is still some snow up top, above 1200m, there's not that much and certainly not enough to get the lifts moving and inviting people up there. So we are just going to have to wait a bit longer.

The resort has said that they now hope to open on Saturday 10th December, so a week later than planned.

Today has been fairly chilly with a high of around 5 degrees. Lots of cloud with some breaks in the cloud from time to time.

How's the forecast looking? While there does look to be snowfall due overnight Saturday and then into Monday on the upper slopes, I don't think we can expect that much. (Hopefully I will be wrong there!) Tomorrow is going to be quite mild with perhaps temperatures in the village hitting around 10 degrees. Rain is very likely in the village though hopefully it will turn into snow up on Yamabiko. After that, fair weather conditions are forecast for the middle of next week.

So, no significant cold front and snow dumpage on the short term horizon just at the moment. Hopefully when we get to the middle of next week, there'll be good news to share.

Have a fun weekend.
