Good morning to you from Nozawa.

I bring really great news of Nozawa-like heavy snowfall.

How about this for the amount of new snowfall to expect - as reported by the resort:

- Yamabiko (1407m): 70cm (...and 20cm yesterday afternoon)
- Uenotaira (1230m): 45cm (...and 20cm yesterday afternoon)
- Hikage (660m): 40cm
- Nagasaka (615m): 40cm
- Karasawa (563m): 20cm

That's fresh snow, not snow depth. By my reckoning, that means that the resort is actually reporting a whopping 90cm of fresh snowfall on the upper areas since yesterday morning. Wow.

(And I'm sat here writing about it!!)

With a thick layer of lovely snow down at base areas too, it's going to be an excellent morning out there if you want to brave the conditions.

Surely more of the mountain will open up from the weekend? Stay tuned.

Calmer and clearer conditions are likely for the next few days once things ease off sometime during the day today; with a return to snow by the time Sunday rolls round.
