Good morning from Nozawa.

An early report today. As of 7am there is cloud around the region but clearer skies above the mountain. It feels vert cold outside and it is surely going to turn into a very fine morning and a nearly perfect day to be out there on the mountain. It looks like all courses apart from Grand Prix and Kamoshika are now available.

The snow did ease off yesterday with just a little being reported and observed since my last post.

More snow might be back tonight and then Tuesday is looking good for another decent fresh layer.

Some clearer weather and sun (as long as it remains cold) and regular fresh snow sounds like a very good pattern to keep over the next few months.
