Good morning from Nozawa.

A really nice morning yesterday. It seemed to take a while for people to appear - I wonder why?! - but the weather and conditions were probably enough to convince even those with a hangover to strap on the skis or board.

Clouds started appearing again later in the day and by evening it was snowing again and this morning Nozawa are reporting up to 25cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes and a good 10-15cm on lower areas. Which is a nice surprise.

Light snow still falling this morning and the snow clouds should be with us today and tomorrow. Perhaps just light snow, rather than what we got last week.

If you are wanting to be here for some sunshine, perhaps timing your visit for Friday is a good bet. And some people will be back at work by then too...

Special nighta until 8:00pm tonight at Nagasaka.

Lifts will be back to 'normal' operating times from tomorrow.
