Yesterday was a great day to be in Nozawa - if you like sitting in the T.V. room watching Flight of the Conchords dubbed video dubbings. Just a few seconds after I pressed update on yesterdays report the big fat flakes that were bringing so much joy stopped falling. The winter wonderland we were promised soon became a barren ice castle and to put it frankly, everyone up there was wasting their time. There were huge queues of up to an hour for the Nagasaka Gondola and half an hour for the Yamabiko covered four. It seems as though half of Tokyo are careening around the upper slopes like wonky dodgems.

The good news is that it has been snowing quite heavily since this morning and is forecast to continue to do so all of today and into tomorrow. This time I am going to reserve my excitement until it's neck deep. At this time of year we really need a lot of snow to make going up worthwhile. 2 minute runs sandwiched between 30 minute lift lines? That better be an amazing 2 minutes.
