Good morning from Nozawa and welcome to the weekend.

The village was bustling last night as people arrived for their weekend fix - it's going to be another busy one here!

A cold and icy start to the day with the temps down to -8 degrees as of 8:30am. The resort isn't actually saying that the top is much colder than the base which is unusual. The sun is out and it's a fine morning.

Happily we have some fresh snow to play in... those getting up there early will have anyway. 5cm across most of the mountain during the day yesterday and this morning another 5-15cm of fresh snow to report; with 10cm reported from Hikage and Nagasaka and 15cm reported on the Uenotaira slopes. There's some snow to shovel down in the village as well this morning which is always a good start.

As good as news of fresh snow is, we want more. Obviously. Tonight it should be snowing and it's looking good for a decent dump of snow overnight so I am looking forward to reporting that in my next report. Doesn't look like it'll be prolonged though with clearer forecast for Monday but back to decent snowfall around Tuesday. So things are looking promising.

All lifts are go!

Have a fun weekend.
