It's an interesting morning here in Nozawa Onsen. We have some light snow falling across the mountain with quite a large variation in temperature from top to bottom. Up high it is still cold, sitting at -8C but down low is positively balmy at about +1C. Therefore we should expect a high degree of snow quality variation across differing altitudes today.

Interestingly we have also had more snow down low than up high. 10cm was recorded on the lower slopes while up high only received 2cm.

Yesterday was a quiet day on the hill. Thanks to cold morning temperatures the snow was very nice in quality with many powder pockets on offer through the trees. The groomed runs were nice to begin before becoming firm and fast in the afternoon, icy in stretches. Snow clouds moved away at midday and it remained partly cloudy with even some sun during the afternoon. Lower slopes became sun affected with a crust forming off piste as the day wound up.

Tomorrow we should expect a nice clear sunny day. No new snow is expected. Following that there should be a bit of warmth moving over the region on Friday and Saturday, possible even some dreaded rain. Thankfully the warm temps should not linger with a cool front breaking through on Saturday night.
