Snow snow snow!

Tons of it. This is true Nozawa-style snowfall and one of the main reasons why we love this place so much.

The fresh snowfall numbers below are what the resort has recorded since 3pm yesterday and does not include snow during the day yesterday (apologies, I was unable to check and make a note of those numbers in time). So there is at least 30+cm fresh since yesterday up top - and I am guessing a fair bit more than that. I have measured about 30cm in a few areas around base this morning.

For four days from today through 2nd January, lifts will be opening 30 minutes earlier than usual. All lifts are operating (apart from Kandahar) and all but five courses are open. This is Nozawa at close on full power. Expect lots of people to be enjoying the mountain with you - but there should be more than enough powder out there now for us all to enjoy. Some kind locals may well even share some 'secret top tips' if you ask them nicely...

From tomorrow the snow should be easing off and there may be some sun. The snow clouds should be back over us come Wednesday though.

Take care and hope you can be here to enjoy it.
