We expected the chance of some light snow overnight and early this morning. It looks as if these haven't shown and we currently have some partly cloudy conditions over Nozawa Onsen. No new snowfall to report.

The riding today will be similar to yesterday with firm and fast surfaces early, grading to slushy by the afternoon. The groomers will be the pick, with the highest Yamabiko reds being of the best quality. Off piste riding will be quite heavy going today, especially in the afternoon.

Yesterday was a very uncrowded day on the hill as many weekdays are. There were still more than a few untracked areas of powder on offer in the morning. During the afternoon these became heavy with the warming temperatures. The groomed runs held classic spring snow which became slushy and forgiving during the afternoon. Partly cloudy to sunny conditions lasted all day and we were greeted with a spectacular sunset during the evening. All in all a nice spring day in Nozawa.

Looking at the forecast ahead we are at the beginning of that gradual warming trend with a series of clear spring days ahead of us. It was forecast to get extremely warm during the next couple of days, but luckily the predictions have backed off somewhat and we now expect a peak freezing level of around 2000 meters Thursday and Friday. Lets hope so. Saturday should see a very brief cool snap lasting only the morning. Sunday should see another more lengthy cool change lasting into Monday. Hopefully we get some more spring powder soon.
