Good morning from Nozawa.

There's more sunshine and blue sky over the region early this morning. It's cold too with the thermometer showing -4C outside just before. It should warm up a bit and get into low positive numbers by this afternoon.

The resort is reporting 20cm of snowfall up on the top areas since yesterday from the snow that started falling in the afternoon yesterday. Not as much down below.

It is looking like we might have to wait until Christmas Day on Monday for the next delivery of fresh snowfall; though what Santa-san plans to bring us does look promising. Before then though we can expect a fair bit of sunshine - and milder conditions - if the forecasts are correct. Let's hope it doesn't warm up too much.

In the meantime, plenty of snow to enjoy with most of the resort already open.
