Good morning from Nozawa.

A nice surprise this morning and for some reason I wasn't expecting this much. I like being surprised this way though!

The ski resort are reporting over 40cm of fresh snowfall on the upper Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas with 20-30cm reported from lower slopes. A large part of that is from overnight with just a bit from the day yesterday.

So conditions should be excellent out there this morning.

And now that the peak New Year rush period is over there should be less people around this morning. Less people tomorrow too and the forecast currently shows that we can expect some sunshine during the day (tomorrow).

If we get that sun, tomorrow should be a cracker especially if we get further snow during the day today which seems likely.

All is good!

Lifts opening times are back to normal from this morning.

The Number 1 car park is free to use today and tomorrow.
