Morning from Nozawa Onsen.

I'll quickly gloss over the rain from yesterday as we have fresh snow this morning and a lot more due over the next two days. (Phew).

It's snowing now and windy too on the mountain. At 8:30am the following lifts are on hold: Nagasaka gondola, Yamabiko quads, Skyline, Uenotaira and Paradise quads.. so basically the top area of the mountain. Obviously, runs coming off those lifts are not available. The Hikage gondola should get going but hasn't just yet. Going to depend on conditions.

Lower lifts appear to be opening as planned.

The peak of the snowfall is due tomorrow. Expect impressive numbers.

There's currently some clear and sunny weather forecast for the weekend. That should be great!
