A very good Saturday morning to you from Nozawa.

I have very Nozawa-like snowfall to report to you this morning.

During the day yesterday up until 3pm the resort was reporting 15-20cm of fresh mountain wide and this morning add another 13-25cm on top of that, so that's 28-45cm (bottom to top). I am measuring 34cm.

Very nice.

More lifts and more courses are open from this morning too - as noted below - so there's a decent part of the mountain now open... most of the upper area (not Skyline) and part of the lower Hikage area. The two areas are not connected by skiable terrain, so if you go to the upper area you will need to get the gondola back down. For now.

It feels like winter has started and it should be a lot of fun out this morning. The snow seems forecast to ease off today and we might get some sunshine tomorrow.

Hope some of you can be here to enjoy it.

I'm off out!
