Good morning from.... Tokyo.

Yes, I am not actually in Nozawa this morning and so having to report from afar using official info and a phone call to a friend. It seems a fairly easy one though so here goes.

Yesterday, the resort was reporting rain at base areas, with snow falling up on the top Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas (with 1cm being reported). This morning they are reporting an additional 5cm on the top Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas and the trees up there do look nicely frosted on the webcam images, as you can see below.

The sun is out too in some places, though a lot of cloud still remains as of 8:30am. A temperature of -7C is being reported by the resort up top so it's pretty cold up there. Let's hope it keeps so.

Looks like the lower part of Skyline is closed this morning... it is open down to the Tanuki course turn-off. But almost all of the resort is of course open and there is lots to enjoy.

It should be a very nice morning and I wish I was there.

I'll be back tomorrow.

And Happy Chinese New Year to everyone celebrating!

Someone apparently asked why I mention rain (when it rains, because that's when I will mention it).

I'm confused.

Does that person want me to lie? Or just conveniently avoid mentioning it because it doesn't sound good?

(That would be intentionally misleading, wouldn't it?)

That's not what these reports - and the other daily reports on SnowJapan - are about. I'll tell you what's happening; that's it.

To that person: if you want to read marketing messages that only tell you what you want to hear, there's plenty of them out there to 'enjoy'!
