Good morning from Nozawa.

Well I am glad to report that the rain stopped and the snow started yesterday. This morning the resort is reporting 5-18cm of snowfall (since yesterday morning) base to top, so a modest layer of fresh out there.

It has still been snowing this morning but it feels like it might be easing. But light snow is on the forecast for the day today; clearer skies tonight.

Tomorrow might start clearer too but the snow clouds should be back during the morning.

It looks like the Nagasaka Gondola is not moving early on this morning - some kind of maintenance. The top areas of the resort are open -- you'll just have to get there using other lifts.
