Good morning from Nozawa.

It is actually a fine morning - the sun is out. Nice spring like day. Doh!

As you can clearly see on the webcam images below, some of the lower courses are looking.... well, take a look for yourself.

Snow cover up top is not a problem and it should be a fine morning if not fresh. Most of the mountain remains open, though it would seem that Skyline and associated courses on that side of the mountain are closed this morning.

OK. This is what you want to hear. Things should be improving very soon. Hopefully starting tonight and through the day tomorrow.

Don't worry too much when we get rained on this afternoon before the snow arrives. That is likely to happen.

In 2-3 days time, things might look very different. I'm hoping for a very Nozawa-like storm with large amounts of snow being delivered right to our door. And I so, so, so hope that will be the case.

I actually want to have to shovel snow. It might sound like I've gone mad, but I would be happy to not be able to snowboard because I have to shovel snow. Don't often say that!
