Good news this morning with up to 30cm of fresh snow being reported by the resort and me measuring over 20cm on the ground.

Early lifts recommended, though visibility is limited at the start of the day as snow continues to fall. Hopefully there will be some more cm to fall today. Looks like it might be light snow through tomorrow but even if it eases off the snow clouds should still be close by and are forecast to be back in style around Sunday and then Tuesday/Wednesday.

So if the forecasts are correct, we should be enjoying regular top-ups over the coming week. Hope some of you can be here to enjoy it. (But not all at once, please!) ;)

All of Nozawa is open apart from Grand Prix, Mukobayashi; and of course Kandahar which is only open to the general public on a few days.
