Good morning from here in Nozawa.

It is a cold start to the day and a cloudy start as well. Lots of clouds hanging on but the forecasts tell us to expect clearer skies (to some extent) by the end of the day today - though it should remain cold.

Snow continued to fall during the day and into the evening yesterday and since the morning report the resort is reporting 23cm of snowfall on the top Yamabiko area, so conditions should be very good up there. Less accumulating on lower levels, so I would say Uenotaira and Yamabiko are the places to head to.

Tomorrow sunshine is forecast and it will likely warm up a slightly, venturing into low positive numbers in the afternoon.

After that, the next snowfall is still due around Monday and we need to be prepared for the chance of some rain on that day before the snow arrives; though it will probably be straight to snow higher up on the mountain. It's looking quite promising though is Monday night and Tuesday so that will be something to look forward to.

Monday 9th January is a national holiday in Japan and for the long weekend (Saturday through Monday) the lifts will be opening 30 minutes earlier than usual - base lifts at 8am and gondolas from 8:10am.
