Good morning from Nozawa.

There's a bit of a break in the snow right now at base but it is very likely temporary. Snow is forecast for the day with that heavy snow still there on the forecast for later tonight into tomorrow.

Still looking very promising.

One important point I would like to make:

I do not work for the ski resort or any related business. I don't own one either. And no such business has any kind of influence on what I write in these reports. None whatsoever. (Even Nasuki - everyone's fave skiing brightly coloured vegetable mascot character - doesn't have a say**).

So, as much as I truly love Nozawa, my reports are not here to 'promote' it.

This is not a marketing promotion. It does not exist in order to try and persuade you to come to Nozawa.

Rather, I am simply here to report things as I see them.

And I can tell you it feels great to not have any such entanglements or pressures. I sleep well at night. Actually a bit too well last night, hence later report. ;)

But that is also why sometimes I make comments like 'it looks like Kamoshika course is back open'... I'm just going on available official information sources for that kind of thing and sometimes the available information can be a bit vague.

Hope that's clear!
