Morning from Nozawa and the snowfall I have to report this morning is similar to yesterday ranging from a dusting on lower slopes to 5cm on upper slopes.

I so miss being able to often report 30cm of fresh dumpage in the village, and I still optimistically hope we'll get to some of that this season - though some locals are more of the 'this is how the season will be' kind of thinking now.

So I'm getting excited about what is on the forecast. After some light snow today/tonight perhaps, it's heavy snow forecast tomorrow night (well on some forecasts anyway). Monday is scheduled currently to be clearer and sunny and that to be followed by a return to snowy conditions and the chance of another decent dump.

Fingers crossed everyone.

Just now there's a lot of fog up top (possibly light snow? - the resort was reporting light snow up there as of 7:30am), making visibility limited in some places. Better in others and maybe it'll clear up this morning.

It's going to be a busy weekend. Let's hope there's lots of fresh snow to play in come Sunday morning.
