Hello from Nozawa.

It's really not a very nice morning unfortunately with rain falling here in the village and more importantly up at the top of the resort as well. Lots of cloud and fog around in places too.

Let's hope it clears by this afternoon.

Sunny skies are forecast for tomorrow and Wednesday with rain due back on Thursday. I don't think we'll be seeing any more snow this season.

From today, it's just most of the upper half of the mountain that remains open with all lower courses and lifts now closed and increasingly bereft of snow. There's still 8000m of course up there to enjoy though. Lift and course information is updated below.

Cheaper lift tickets are also available from today until the end of the season:

Adults: 3700 yen
Children: 1700 yen
Seniors: 2900 yen

When will the end of the season be?

The resort is still talking 8th May... but with that still being over a month away and the snow base we have, it seems overly optimistic. This time last year there was 330cm of snow officially up on Yamabiko - today it is exactly one third of that. I'll let you know of any news that I hear.

From now until the end of the season the Nozawa Now reports will be posted at least a few times a week.
