Hello and welcome back to our Nozawa Now reports, coming to you directly from the lovely Nozawa Onsen village here in northern Nagano Prefecture.

A lot of rain over summer (and autumn too really) but we have had a number of very fine days showing off the autumn colours - this last weekend being a good example. That was quickly followed up by temperatures getting colder and.... the first dusting of snow on the upper slopes of Nozawa on show yesterday morning. Yes, that first snow has fallen up there - none down in the village yet of course, but always good to clock up that first 'event'.

Locals are busy doing their annual pre-season preparations, and at the same time there's quite a lot of tourists around for the autumn.

The resort plans to get the lifts moving on Saturday 29th November this season, so we are just one month away.

Do take a look back at previous Nozawa Now reports (links at the bottom of this page) to get an idea of how the early season usually develops.

Here's to a great season.

We'll try to post a report each week now up until the start of the season. Once it gets going of course, there'll be daily updates. I hope you'll spend the season with us!
