Good morning from Nozawa where currently it is just generally cloudy though snow clouds are close by and light snow is forecast on and off for the day. Early this morning just a dusting down below and not much more than a dusting up top either (2cm).

Are we going to get the decent snowfall that is on some forecasts for later today? We can but hope, though different forecasts tell different things... so I'm confused.

I think I'll just have to strap on the skis to clear my mind.

It will be a busy weekend out there with lots more visitors coming in to Nozawa to enjoy their Chinese New Year holidays.
