It has been a week of rather mild conditions in Nozawa. The snow that we had down quite low before the weekend has gradually melted and now the snow is patchy at around 1200m with a cover still up on the top slopes of the resort.

Earlier this afternoon we had a high temperature of around 15 degrees and around 8 up on the mountain and so not the most winter-like conditions.

The resort is still planning to open on 3rd December - this coming Saturday - but it is of course all going to depend on snow. Right now it would not be possible. But the encouraging news is that from tomorrow things look set to get colder once again. Possible snowfall tomorrow night and then some more before the weekend, but whether it is enough for part of the resort to open is something we are just going to have to wait on.

My guess would be that the opening will need to be delayed.

Reports will get more regular now as we approach the season start in Nozawa.
