We have had a light dusting of snow overnight in Nozawa Onsen; not much, just 1cm being reported by the resort up at Uenotaira (and 0cm in other areas).

It's currently overcast with light winds but we expect clouds to move away some time this morning with a clear bluebird day forecast. Temperatures are set to remain relatively cool with a freezing level at about 600m.

Groomed runs will be silky smooth and fast this morning and are set to remain in good condition with light weekday crowds. Through the trees will be mostly tracked out in obvious areas but with a bit of a hunt powder stashes are still on offer.

With the fresh snow yesterday the whole mountain was in great form and the weekend crowds relished in the conditions. Off piste it was still possible to feel the icy base beneath and there were a few submerged death cookies, which required a good sense of the terrain, but riding was otherwise pretty good.

Looking further ahead at the extended forecast we expect light snow showers tomorrow. These will be the last for some time so best to make the most of the conditions. Following that we expect an extended run of clear, warm spring days and cool nights. A gradual warming trend will occur until Saturday, when it was really warm up, after which a brief cool change is looking likely.
