Enjoying Golden Week?

It's a bit of a hazy kind of morning here in Nozawa. Clearer and good visibility up top but a grey kind of bright, if that makes sense! The forecast is for sun though so perhaps that will happen and also sun for tomorrow and Thursday. Whatever, decent weather conditions for the rest of Golden Week.

Snow has pretty much gone from lower levels of the resort near the village now... once that starts going it really does dry up quickly! Still really good snow cover up top though, officially 185cm at Yamabiko. Seems much less than that in places to me, but all the same it's not patchy.

Here's the list of open courses open at the moment:

Yamabiko A
Yamabiko B
Yamabiko C
Yamabiko D
Yamabiko E
Kokenashi A
Kokenashi B
Yunomine A
Yunomine B
Paradise connecting course
Uenotaira Snow Park
