Hello from Nozawa where right now light snow is falling.

There has been 15+cm of snow on upper areas since my report yesterday and fingers crossed there will be more snow through the day today and back tomorrow night as well - easing off somewhere between those. I wouldn't expect big numbers, though as we are still low on snow everything counts.

More courses and lifts open at Nozawa now - newly open courses include Ushikube, Isemiya and Kitsune. There's still more to open of course and not enough snow yet for lots of the steeper areas. Skyline is not yet open either.

Nozawa is going to be busy and bustling over the next few days, more people arriving today for their stay over the New Year.

Hope you enjoy the charming village if you are going to be here.

Remember to pray for snow.

Please note that on Wednesday 30th December, Thursday 31st December, Saturday 2nd January and Sunday 3rd January, the lifts and gondolas at Nozawa Onsen will all be starting their day 30 minutes earlier than usual.
