After all the dizzy excitement of the last few days, things are somewhat calmer this morning. I don't think we could do with that every day!

OK so no new snowfall this morning to report and just cloudy over Nozawa. Wind is affecting things though early on, and it looks like we only have the bottom Nagasaka quad operating as of 9am. The resort seems to be saying that such is the plan for the day. So the Gondola and top runs aren't going to be open today by the sounds of things.

Doesn't feel that windy down here at all, but there you go... there's a lot of difference between top and bottom of Nozawa, one of the features of this place.

It may just be cloudy here now, but tomorrow is still forecast to be back to wilder conditions. Snow. Probably lots of it. Wind. Depending on conditions of course, operations may be affected tomorrow as well.

It's a bit milder this morning and rain might start up later on before it turns into snow overnight but hopefully that'll be kept to a minimum.

Let's see what I can report tomorrow morning.
