Morning from Nozawa.

The good news is that it is colder today and there is actually some fresh snow on the ground this morning - the ski resort is reporting 3-5cm across the mountain and I also measured 3cm.

Strong winds are still with us though and affecting the top lifts of the resort.

At the time of this report going up, the following lifts are not operating due to strong winds:

- Nagasaka Gondola
- Yamabiko lifts
- Uenotaira quad
- Skyline connecting pair

Hopefully things will start calming down during the day today and they might get going.

By tomorrow morning things should be looking rather different. The sun should be out and it will be calmer. And warmer once again. It looks like it is going to be a very spring-like weekend with temperatures rising into low-mid teens. Thankfully we're looking at a drop in the temps again from Monday and while we might get some more rain it should be turning into snow.

Phew!
