Good morning from Nozawa.

Fine weather yesterday and we're probably going to get similar today and tomorrow too, with some milder temperatures. Possibly rising to around 7C in village tomorrow, not quite so much today. Let's keep that the upper limit please!

As of 8:30am there is still quite a lot of grey moody looking cloud around but some blue sky too and clearer skies during the day are likely.

We'll be back to colder conditions and snow from around Friday, so there is fresh on the way.

There are only four runs now not open at Nozawa as they have opened the Skyline and a few connected courses are now available.

Naski is looking happy this morning.

-----

Yesterday the resort put up a message on its Japanese site asking people to not enter restricted areas. I haven't heard of any specific incident but it sounds like some people have been checking out some areas that they are asked to not go, particularly around the line of the new Gondola. There is a chance major accidents happening, especially when there's deep conditions like there has been this last week.

Nozawa Onsen is plenty big to offer tons of terrain within official areas.

I believe we should all respect the rules that are in place.
