Good morning, and say hello to the first day of the 16-17 season at Nozawa Onsen.

The recent snowfall has been enough for the resort to offer a limited opening from this morning. Basically it's the Yamabiko D course and the Uenotaira course that will be open with the necessary lifts operating, details posted below.

Yesterday the clouds cleared up and this morning the sun is out to welcome in the season, with some cloud around up there.

While it will be milder today (up to around 6C here in the village later on?), it's due to get colder and hopefully by the end of today snow will be falling again... and snow is forecast over the weekend as well.

So it's a limited start but good signs of more snow on the way.

Now, where's all my gear...!

Lifts that are planned to be operating:
Nagasaka Gondola (8:30am-3:30pm)
Yamabiko Number 2 Four Lift (8:55am-3:40pm)
Uenotaira Four Lift (9:00am-3:40pm)

Courses that are planned to be open
Yamabiko D course (1,250m in length)
Uenotaira course (2,000m in length)

Official snow depths
Yamabiko: 345cm
Uenotaira: 35cm
Hikage: 10cm
Nagasaka: 10cm
Karasawa: 5cm

Fresh snow reported by resort since yesterday
Yamabiko: 0cm
Uenotaira: 0cm
Hikage: 0cm
Nagasaka: 0cm
Karasawa: 0cm
