Good news!

Just the Yamabiko D course and the Uenotaira course to start off with... more details in my report tomorrow.

Original morning report

After the lovely weather that we ended up enjoying yesterday, it's a snowy morning in Nozawa and there is a bit more snow on the ground here in the village.

Here's what the resort is reporting this morning - the official snow depth numbers top to bottom:

Yamabiko: 35cm
Uenotaira: 35cm
Hikage: 7cm
Nagasaka: 7cm
Karasawa: 5cm

We still need more, but it's looking like there might be some decent snow coming - particular at higher elevations - as we enter the weekend. Before that, today is also forecast to clear up later on and tomorrow will likely be slightly milder again.

One thing that is probably a good idea to point out for those who are new to Nozawa... the resort usually opens just the upper areas first, ie. it doesn't wait until lower areas are skiable. So a bit more up top and we could be looking at opening soon.

For the moment, no official news to report on that score.

Nozawa Onsen will open as soon as there is enough snow.
