Morning from Nozawa and welcome to the start of the last bit of the season.

What does that mean? Basically lower charges (as I mentioned a few days ago), fewer lifts operating and some courses closed off.

First up here's the lifts that have stopped running for the season:

Hikage Gondola
Challenge pair lift
Utopia pair lift
Kandahar pair lift
Nagasaka quad
Nagasaka triple
Nagasaka gondola connecting
Karasawa pair

Weekends will likely see more lifts moving, but for today it's weekday operations again and what I will do from now on is mention what lifts and courses plan to be open in the information below on each report.

We'll be continuing to update Nozawa Now right through until the end of the season in early May.

I almost forgot to mention the weather and the new snow! After that rain stuff yesterday, and quite a chilly night, this morning there is reportedly up to 8cm of fresh snow on the top Yamabiko course areas. Yey. Looks a bit foggy up there still though I expect it to clear up today.
