An improvement today just in time for the start of the weekend. The sun is shining and we have blue though somewhat hazy spring skies above Nozawa. Quite cold though actually and not quite 5 degrees as we approach 9am here at base. The sun should get things warming up though and double digit temperatures expected later.

As you can see on the photo today from the lower Karasawa area, the snow is finally starting to make way for the ground to be seen in places. That there's still not that much of that going on on 18th April is impressive. There's still a lot around though and the resort official snow depth for the top Yamabiko area still standing at 260cm.

(According to the official website, as well as the planned lifts (below) the Mizunashi triple and Hikage Number 2 Pair lifts are also moving this morning).

More sunshine is expected tomorrow and warm conditions.
