Morning from Nozawa Onsen.

Cloud start this morning. Contrasting forecasts today but it's all a mix of cloud and sun. And the same for tomorrow too actually.

Rested lifts today: Skyline connecting pair, Challenge pair, Utopia pair, Nagasaka quad, Karasawa pair. Pretty much all open apart from Yunomine A, Grand Prix and Kamoshika.

Hey it's the weekend in January. Peak season and usually very busy. I wonder how many people will be here. With covid looming on the news, I have heard of groups being cancelled and the like. I feel generally people are just going on with their lives, perhaps less concerned than they have been in previous 'waves', but still being careful. Naski is out and looking very green and cheerful (as always). Lets hope everyone else can keep that way.
