Some very respectable snow numbers since the report yesterday morning with some really heavy snow falling for quite a lot of the day.

Proper Nozawa style!

The resort made a few updates during the day all adding up to around 50cm of fresh snow in places and not that much less than that down at base either.

It was a good day and this morning should be excellent - helped along by some very fine clear skies and sunshine.

Going to warm up a little this afternoon, hopefully not too much. Tomorrow is also going to probably be sunny and a bit warmer than today too, with a high of around 6-7 degrees expected at base.

Then we come to Saturday which promises snow later in the day and the chance of some rain (please..no) earlier on before the snow - though it'll probably start off as snow on upper parts of the mountain.

The roller-coaster like and odd weather of the season continues! (Let's have some more days like yesterday!)
