Morning from Nozawa.

Well, the resort is reporting 15-18cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes which sounds good, and I can happily it is not raining down here - it was last night with a bit of sloppy stuff to be found in some places.

It's fairly mild and probably will be so for the next few days and we can just hope that we can avoid more wet conditions.

Happily Nozawa has that vertical so upper slopes often get snow if we do get rained on here in the village. My advice - head to the top!

Oh yes, Skyline fans rejoice! That popular course is now open.

Come Monday there looks to be a good chance that temperatures will drop again with fresh snow mountain wide.
