Sounding a bit like a broken record but another really great start to the day here in Nozawa Onsen. We have had about 15cm up top since the close of lifts yesterday and for the first time in a few days we are being blessed with some sunshine early on.

That sun will probably be short lived, so enjoy it and the great views while you can as looks like a little bit of snow tonight then we are going to get covered again with heavy falls expected over the weekend, forecasts showing we could be in for over 100cm! So time to clear the decks of snow a bit today as most people are doing with the locals up the roofs already.

Anyone coming up over the weekend is advised to be prepared, if driving up suggest you carry chains.

Yesterday was a great day on the mountain with some bottomless powder runs and stories of great conditions.
