Yesterday I mentioned that there might be a chance of snow on the mountain overnight... and it happened. Haven't been up there myself but Nozawa Onsen are saying that there's 3cm of fresh snow on the top Yamabiko runs. They are even labelling it as powder! Sounds like the place to be to me!

It's certainly remaining colder than we expect for early May and not really budging much over 5 degrees. As of 8am, Yamabiko was -3 degrees. So you still need to wrap up well going up there. Cloudy and foggy up there early on this morning and the forecast tells us that it might rain.

The lifts will all be operating 30 minutes earlier than usual tomorrow and also on Saturday and Sunday (before going back to normal on Monday for the last day of the season). That means that the Nagasaka Gondola will take the first people up at 8:10am.
