Morning from Nozawa and 5-10cm of snow being reported by the resort this morning and 6cm measured by myself.

Yesterday late afternoon deserves a mention. Not for snow but the spectacular colours that nature provided - a mix of pink and blue pastel shades to the skies and clouds, it was beautiful.

But we want more beautiful snow of course, so it's good that there's some fresh this morning and it is snowing as I write this as well. After today the forecast is looking rather dry and at times quite mild too, so we could do with a decent dump of snow today.

Actually, from today the 'Yu Road' is open and also the Hikage Gondola is going to open so the Paradise course is scheduled to be available as well. The resort has also said that it is preparing the Paradise Four lift, the Hikage triple lift and Shinyu pair lift as well, so we're going to be seeing more open very soon.
