Good morning from Nozawa.

It's kind of sunny but also feeling rather overcast this morning.

Still great cover on upper slopes and not too bad lower down either. Karasawa is looking very patchy, Nagasawa is looking a bit patchy, Hikage is still has snow cover just looking a bit not-perfect-white. But upper slopes - and they're the ones that matter now - are looking good.

Perhaps a little rain this afternoon and overnight.

The resort was saying that the lifts noted in the list below would be open for the weekend, but on the official site this morning I see they are showing the Yunomine pair and Mizunashi triple also operating - I didn't notice them yesterday and am not planning on being up there today... so not sure on that particular point.
