Morning from Nozawa.

A bit more like it this morning, but still nothing like the full-on winter storm that we are waiting for.

As you can see on the images, there has been some snowfall on the mountain overnight with the upper slopes looking more white again and coming down close to the base, but it's not much. Nozawa usually opens just the top runs first at the beginning of the season, so we don't need snow on the lower slopes to get things going, but there's still not enough up there to get started yet.

It's just about hovering slightly above zero before 9am this morning with light snow falling. Some forecasts are confident of heavier snowfall - the kind that will make a difference - later today and into tomorrow and it does look like it should get colder.

Let's see what I can report tomorrow morning.

Nozawa Onsen was hoping to be able to open on Saturday, but there's not much snow as yet up there.
