Morning from Nozawa.

Not the best of days yesterday with rain down low but this morning the resort reports 5-8cm of fresh snow on the upper slopes.

There is still a blanket of cloud down low above the base area but the sun is out higher up and it should be a fine day.

A mild few days and hopefully snowfall coming back by late Sunday and into Monday.

A large part of Nozawa is open which is good, but we all want to see lots of fresh deep powder out there.
