Morning from Nozawa.

Very light snow falling early this morning but the forecast says clearer skies are due today.

The resort is reporting up to 5cm of snowfall on the upper areas this morning with none down below, so a similar kind of situation as yesterday morning in that respect.

We're expecting a few days of generally clearer skies with the chance of a light snow shower here and there and the next potentially decent snowfall looks to be around Thursday. There's mention of rain before the snow on that day, so let's keep an eye on that...

Just a few more days and it will be March. Inevitably, talk of spring increases once we get into March but let's hope that winter sticks around with us for as long as possible. March can be somewhat unpredictable in terms of snowfall, and it can also bring some decent snowfalls. Let's have lots of that this season please.

Nozawa likes to be open until the first part of May, so there's a long way to go yet!
