So much for the sunny day that was on the forecast for today! It sure hasn't started that way here in Nozawa.

In fact, the resort is even reporting light snow falling up on Yamabiko and Uenotaira! What about that then.

From the looks of the webcams, visibility up there seems to be very poor as well down to around Paradise. The lower slopes just have cloud hanging over them but I would think most people visiting today will be wanting to quickly get up to the better conditions on the upper slopes rather than hang around base.

It definitely feels colder this morning which is good too. Perhaps it will clear up later on...

I'm almost hesitant to report what the forecast says after the miss yesterday, but here goes. Looks like it should be slightly warmer, cloudy and a chance of rain. A bit further ahead things look set to warm up again next week.

Remember tomorrow is the last day of the season for the lower areas of the resort. Plans for the rest of the season as posted below...
