Another fine start to the day here in Nozawa and glorious conditions on the mountain. As per usual with a bit of sun and warmer temperatures, the base has settled a bit and has had a bit of melt off down in the Village.

Have the feeling that it is the calm before the storm though with the dump expected on Saturday night and into early next week still building with 100cm not unlikely. Expectations are high!

Yesterday on the hill there was still lots of fresh tracks to be had and saw a few losing their skis in the powder. Probably wont see those until April now! It was getting pretty heavy on the lower south facing slopes as was expected, but conditions were terrific on the upper slopes.

Around the Village the young and old are working hard to clear roofs and paths in anticipation of what is coming. It should begin tonight!
