Morning from Nozawa. No fresh snow to report this morning - it's mostly cloudy but some breaks in the cloud and the chance of some clearer skies later on. In fact, there's even a bit of sun breaking through the clouds now in places.

All lifts at the resort (apart from the Kandahar lift) are now operating as planned. More courses are available now including one that I really enjoy - Skyline. There's now less courses closed than open - at last - and so I have noted those in the information below.

The forecast has been telling us to expect warmer conditions today and tomorrow and it does feel like it's going to be mild after the early morning chill. Expect high temps around 5-6 degrees today and slightly higher tomorrow.

Next snowfall? Perhaps Tuesday, though there is a chance in there that it may rain before snow. But hopefully not.

Anyway, enjoy the day!

Please note that on Saturday 2nd January and Sunday 3rd January, the lifts and gondolas at Nozawa Onsen will all be starting their day 30 minutes earlier than usual.
