Good morning from here in Nozawa.

The Hikage area is now closed and the resort itself has put up a message recommending that people take the Gondolas back down to base from now on. The Challenge, Utopia A and Rinkan courses do remain part open but snow melt is progressing fast and they're not in the best of conditions - care needed. Hence the recommendation to take the Gondola back down.

I think most people would want to be up top now anyway... snow cover up there remains good! I'm going to head up there myself in a few minutes...

Anyway, it's another fine and sunny morning here in Nozawa, a high of 16 degrees likely later this afternoon. Rain is on the forecast for either tomorrow and/or Monday (different forecasts disagreeing on the details) - so perhaps today is the pick of the weekend.

Have a great Saturday wherever you may be.

The Yamabiko A course will be used for an event today and Sunday meaning that it'll be closed for the general public.

(On the report the snow depth will be noted as Uenotaira, so 50cm today. Next season this won't be an issue with some upcoming changes to the reports!)
