Good morning from Nozawa Onsen.

Yesterday didn't do much for snow conditions being a bit mild and a bit of a southerly wind. The official numbers from up top are down a bit this morning though lifts and courses that are open remains unchanged.

So while we have lots of cloud around now, the forecast is for snow to start from this afternoon (perhaps with some rain before turning to snow in lower areas). There is snow forecast across the coming week too, so we can be confident of some decent numbers upcoming.

'Countdown Fireworks' tonight at Nozawa at midnight and there will be some hot wine and soft drinks being served from 11pm. I'm not sure if Nasuki will be tucked up and asleep by then, but who knows... perhaps our favourite vegetable may make an appearance!

(Note that there will not be any night skiing tonight).

Lifts are opening 30 minutes earlier every day until 3rd January for the New Year period. That means that the Gondolas both get going from 8:10am, and the Shinyu pair and Yu Road both start from 8:00am.
