Morning from Nozawa.

We're still in the middle of this mild and wet spell, though the good news is that the resort is reporting snow falling on upper slopes (and 3-4cm of fresh up there). It's raining down at base though but will hopefully ease off. The webcam images from upper areas shows very limited visibility.

Mixed weather on the forecast the next few days before some potentially significant snow as we enter early next week.

With the weather since that decent snowfall I reported on Sunday, we could really now be doing with that mountain-wider reset.
