Just a dusting of snow really since yesterday with Hikage winning out in the "new snow" stakes with a whopping 2cm.

It's only because we are generally getting so much that I can joke about that! ;)

Anyway it's a fine morning here. Lots of cloud around but might it clear up a bit today? It might. It's just cloudy for now with no snow falling and some breaks in those clouds. We haven't had many blue-sky days this season so far, so would be nice to have one of those soon (after 40cm overnight of course).

Snow expected tomorrow and Sunday and it'll remain pretty cold on mountain.

Lower lifts will get moving from 8am and the Gondolas from 8:10am on Sunday (11th) and Monday (12th)...

This coming Monday, the 12th, is a national holiday here in Japan and there'll be a few events happening at Nozawa. Including a 'mochi-tsuki taikai' event hosted by everyone's favourite vegetable Nasuki, over at the Hikage Information Centre at 10:30am and 2pm. No less exciting is the 7:50am start by the Nagasaka Gondola to take lucky people up for first tracks. Or so it the resort tells me. That one sounds good.

As the coming weekend is a 3 day long one, it's one of the peak weekends of the season so expect a fair few people here in Nozawa.
