Original report

Good morning from Nozawa

As expected, it's mild this morning.

The resort itself was reporting a temperature of +4C up on the top Yamabiko area as of 7:30am (as well as some spots of rain). We have some of that down here too now - was a little brighter just a short while ago; looks like it's brighter up top now, so changeable conditions. The chance of rain should go away as the morning goes on; so, quickly please.

These warmer temperatures are unfortunately going to be bugging us through until around Sunday with colder conditions and the chance of snow on the forecast for Monday.

---

The only courses not open at Nozawa at the moment are Kandahar (which is of course often the case, see below) and Kamoshika which is closed due to avalanche risk.

The Kandahar course is often used for official events and mostly closed to the public. However they do sometimes open it for everyone and for the rest of this season it will be open to the public on the following dates: 25th February, 2nd and 16th March
