2pm update:

As the snow continues to fall, from 2pm today the resort is opening the Rinkan course to connect the Paradise course with the Nagasaka Gondola. For now it is just to use as means to get back to base. The resort also seems to have the Yunomine pair and Mizunashi lifts and associated courses now operating/open.

Original morning report

Now this feels more like it!

It is a good morning indeed in Nozawa.

We have good cold wintery conditions with decent snow falling from the skies right down to the village.

Yes, after an odd mix of weather yesterday, last night the snow started and we have it on the ground here now with it continuing to fall. Snow is forecast for the day today, maybe a break in it during the day tomorrow but more fresh snow due again by tomorrow evening.

At the time of writing, no word on any changed to what will be open today at Nozawa Onsen. I would not be surprised though if more of the resort opened as more snow falls though. Check with them if you are going to be here.

Should be fun up there this morning. Be sure to wrap up well though and don't get too excited - visibility is limited.

Great stuff. Loads of snow please!
