It´s snowing again in Nozawa village and at the top of the mountain. Conditions are very good with a base of packed powder and a thin layer of fresh on top that, which is being added to all the time. Visibility is quite good up there considering all the snow coming down. It is very cold and winds are gusty. There is almost no-one on the mountain and the only queue for lifts was a short one at the bottom of the Nagasaka gondola first thing in the morning. Light snow is forecast to continue today and tommorrow and then for a little dry patch. Little snow during the day yesterday but clear skies and apparently it was a good day on the mountain. It was also a good day for igloo building as the first igloo went up in Nozawa. Renovations will continue today and I will keep you up to date on progress.

Don´t let the snow depth figures for today fool you, although they have gone down this is definetly not due to melting! I would hazard a guess that they are doing some serious grooming to get ready for the season.

Lift operations are still limited to the top, we are getting very itchy to ride the rest of the mountain. I have heard a rumour that lift operations will be extended on the 21st of December and with all this snow conditions should be excellent from top to bottom.
