It is a very good morning here in Nozawa.

Decent snowfall has arrived. There's 35cm of fresh snowfall on the top Yamabiko area and 20-28cm across the mountain, according to the resort. And I have just measured 24cm.

Nice.

Cold too. Proper mid-winter conditions.

And it is continuing to snow and not about to let up any time soon so things should quickly build up.

I don't have any news yet of lift/course changes but there will be changes over the next few days. Some preparation and checking is surely involved - they'll get things open as soon as they can safely.

Visibility is limited out there so remember too take care at the same time as being excited of course.
