Good morning from Nozawa.

There is some sun this morning but quite a lot of heavy looking cloud around too.

It's still kind of mild, so while there might be rain soon there is a good chance that by later on in the day today/tonight snow will be falling and I'll be reporting a fresh layer to you tomorrow. And tomorrow should be colder, with light snow forecast.

I am pleased to be able to report that the Hikage Gondola is back open from this morning. So basically we are all open as planned and there are just three courses areas closed (Challenge 39, Yunomine A and Grand Prix).

-----

With everything else going on I somehow neglected to mention the famous Dosojin Fire Festival. It is traditionally held on 15th January every year and important date on the Nozawa calendar.

As you might have expected, it was cancelled. Sorry for not mentioning it.
