The good days keep rolling on. Snow from the dump over the last few days is still in excellent quality thanks to persisting cold temperatures, and if you know where to look there are fresh tracks on offer. It should be another good days riding... if you can avoid the crowds. High crowd levels this long weekend are causing some long lift lines... plan good to avoid. It's certainly busy out there and a testament to the popularity of Nozawa.

It’s partly cloudy at the moment but generally nice blue skies and we expect clouds and snow showers to return by later in the afternoon. No new snow to report.

Yesterday was a great day on the mountain, hardly a frown on the hill. Waiting for lifts aside!

Deep fresh powder was on offer through the trees. The snow was so deep that some of the classic tree runs around Yamabiko were not steep enough to maintain forward momentum. Oh the problems we face! That icy base layer which has been hanging around is now less of a concern, gradually getting buried.

As so often happens the snow that was expected tonight seems to have been pushed back a little. We now expect the heaviest period of snowfalls to occur on Monday morning and to last all day. Should be a cold day too. Following that light snow showers should continue till Wednesday when we expect clear skies to return. All in all a decent week for snowfall looks likely.

Tomorrow is a holiday and so it will still be busy. Probably less than today but still a lot of people probably taking advantage of the long weekend. As we get into the afternoon people will start making their way back home and so it should get quieter.
