Good morning from Nozawa.

After a very warm day yesterday there is lots of cloud above Nozawa this morning and it is very noticeably colder.

The warm conditions yesterday will surely have wiped out a fair few cm of snow on the lower areas of the mountain - indeed, check out the Hikage webcam image below with a clear difference since yesterday. It was a lovely day though and while it might not be fresh and fluffy, there are no snow cover issues up top.

Expect a bit more of the mountain to be open for the weekend as per last weekend. I'll try and get a report up as early as I can tomorrow.

Oh yes, sun is forecast for tomorrow.

From tomorrow I will take out the 'fresh snowfall' data bit below.
