Good afternoon from Nozawa Onsen where we were woken by a bit of a flurry of snow falling this morning. Almost worthy of strapping on the powder boards!

Was pretty heavy at times but the tap seems to be only on about half way at the moment. Just had one happy slider come down and said was a beautiful morning with soft snow and some sunshine filtering through.

Don't mind these little top ups as it keeps the slopes fresh and not too crazy down in the village for the shovel crew. The call has gone out for a big dump though by people who have just recently arrived in Nozawa and missed all the mayhem of the past few weeks!

The forecast is not showing anything major on the horizon at this stage but things can change pretty quickly up here in the mountains.

Big weekend ahead with the public holiday to celebrate Foundation day so there should be a buzz with events also celebrating the 100th year of skiing in Japan. Iiyama City below us has the annual Yuki Matsuri this weekend with snow sculpting and food stalls not quite as grand as Sapporo but well worth a look.
