Hello from Nozawa.

By 3pm yesterday the resort was reporting 10-18cm of fresh snowfall across the mountain and this morning and extra 10-20cm, so that makes a total of 20-38cm since my last report. I have measured 26cm of snowfall myself.

Really great quality snow too with temperatures keeping very low through the last few days. It's really cold. And it isn't going to warm up any during the day today - or tomorrow - either if the forecasts are correct.

More cold, more snow. The mountain is getting a totally major refresh.

Yesterday the top Yamabiko A-E courses were closed from quite early on due to fog and poor visibility. Similar conditions seem to be the case this morning if the webcams are anything to go by - though no news from the resort on that so far.

If you decide to battle the conditions, be sure to check before heading out for the latest on lift operations.

Be safe.
