Last day of winter (officially!) and it's another warm spring-like day here in Nozawa Onsen. We have some partly cloudy conditions and the forecast suggests a full bluebird later this afternoon so at least the visibility will make up for the warmth and conditions.

Riding should be fun with the groomers being the pick. Runs will be slushy at lower elevations even this morning with mild overnight temperatures. Towards the peak we expect firm and fast conditions this morning, softening during the afternoon. An excellent day for practicing in the park and pipe with soft, forgiving landings.

Yesterday saw warm spring conditions and it was slushy even at the summit of the resort. Conditions remained clear for the morning but during the afternoon clouds and mist rolled over the top half of the resort; so the best riding was had early.

Looking at the weather for the next few days we expect that tomorrow will be even warmer than today with around +7C predicted for mid level elevations. Unfortunately we expect some rain right up to the summit as well.

On Friday night the freezing level should make a dramatic drop as a cold front moves over the region. We expect strong winds and moderate snow on Saturday with cold temperatures and snow showers continuing for at least a couple of days following. With an icy base layer from the current warmth avalanche conditions will be very hazardous.
