It has snowed all night in Nozawa and we are happy to welcome back the 'magic foot' with around 30cm of fresh snow falling overnight.

Great to see it and has given a beautiful powder top up to the slopes this morning. Many remained ungroomed so there will certainly be some nice powder runs to be had.

The snow is still dumping outside the window as I type so looks like we are in for a great cover. The forecast shows some clear skies ahead before another serous dump on Sunday night and into early next week.

The Winter patterns seem to have arrived in Nozawa.
