Good morning from Nozawa.

Early morning fog down low this morning, but it is much clearer higher up on the mountain with mostly cloud but a bit of blue sky to see.

Yesterday we actually had some rain falling in the afternoon which I wasn't expecting, and of course wasn't pleased to see.

Happily it is dry this morning though we are still expecting some rain later tomorrow but hopefully sooner than later it will turn into snow on Friday with snow forecast into Saturday as well.

The official snow depth numbers that the resort reports are gradually going down over the last few days and it's getting fairly thin on the ground in lower areas; looking forward to them hopefully taking a jump back up by Sunday!
