Morning from Nozawa.

The snow really started coming down during the day yesterday! Nozawa was reporting 20-25cm of fresh snowfall across the mountain by 3pm. This morning we're still dealing with lots more additional snow - this morning the resort is reporting up to 46cm of snow up on Yamabiko... that's on top of the snow they were reporting yesterday at 3pm. So I am not wrong, they are effectively reporting over 70cm up top with 45cm at base since yesterday morning.

There's certainly a lot of fresh snow built up even down here at base. Tons of it.

So while conditions might still be dicey for some people - poor visibility, wind, deep snow - if you are keen to brave the current conditions you'll be rewarded with some excellent snow conditions.

More snow during the day today and the snow clouds may still be over Nozawa tomorrow too.

Fingers crossed for less wind and improved visibility.

Take care out there and have fun.
