Welcome to the weekend - the sun is out and it's a warm start to the day in Nozawa. A very fine day for some spring sliding. We can expect it to warm up to around 15C this afternoon out there. And watch out as next week it's going to climb higher still. Wednesday is still looking like a real jump to the 20's. Before that though tomorrow will be less warm and we'll probably be rained on later in the day.

The official snow depth numbers dip below 3m shock! Remember, it is past mid-April and so it's pretty amazing that we have so much snow left I think. There are some patches of ground on show on some of the lower areas, but high up there is still a large amount of snow - it will be interesting to see just when it all melts away up there this year.

The Uenotaira and Paradise quad lifts are moving for the weekend. After this weekend the resort plans to open them up again for the Golden Week period (28th April until 6th May).

As I think I mentioned before, lift tickets for this last stage of the season are 3500 yen for adults, 1500 yen for children and 2500 yen for over 60's.

Current Official Snow Depths Numbers:

Yamabiko:
290cm

Uenotaira:
240cm

* Readings by the resort from lower slopes now seem to have finished - though there's still generally plenty.
