Get the cameras out we have an absolute stunner here it Nozawa Onsen this morning!

Light snow flurries continued overnight giving a minor top up to the cover out on the mountain. However the dawn saw the clouds part and give way to sun and some perfect blue skies. This is one of those days to remember with plentiful deep snow, minimal wind and excellent visibility.

Yesterday saw continued moderate to occasionally heavy snowfalls but the extremely flat light made skiing outside the trees challenging, especially up high. Off piste chokingly deep powder limited skiing to steep areas with many riders became bogged down on the more moderate slopes.

However snow quality was just about as good as it gets.

From yesterday at 3pm until 8am this morning the resort was reporting 35cm of fresh snow up on Yamabiko with about 15cm of new snowfall on the lower slopes.

Current forecast suggests a return to snow showers tomorrow before a period of variable weather the following few days.
