Good morning from Nozawa.

If my recording of the numbers yesterday evening was correct, the resort was reporting 10-32cm (base-top) of snowfall during the day yesterday and this morning there is another 10-22cm. That is a range of 20cm at base and 54cm up top, as reported by the resort. That upper number seems rather a lot - I wasn't out on the mountain yesterday, but their numbers are usually trustworthy (Nasuki would complain otherwise) and so I am eager go to check it out this morning.

So lower slopes have had a decent reset and the mountain should be in good shape this morning. Potentially really great shape.

I'll know once I check.

Cloudy skies are expected today, though there is already some blue sky and sun breaking through as I post this report. Mostly sunny skies forecast for tomorrow.

The resort has cancelled the Garigari-kun Festa event that it has planned for tomorrow and Sunday - it is a precautionary measure due to the coronavirus situation. Other than that the resort is open as planned of course.

Let us all hope that the news on that front gets better soon. I'm being careful doing the washing hands thing etc, but feel that a day in the fresh cold air on the mountain is very low risk. (Personal comment!)
