Hmmmm. At 3pm yesterday the resort was reporting rain on the upper slopes and cloud at base, with temperatures ranging from 0C to +6C down in the village. Overnight it was around +3 degrees in the village and there's no escaping the fact that I heard rain coming down in the middle of the night. It actually looks like it should get colder as the lifts start moving and during the day today. At the moment as of 8am it is around +1C.

While it's wet in lower areas, it's snowing on the Yamabiko area say the resort. A look at the webcams also shows pretty poor visibility up there. They are also saying there's a new 5cm up there (and 10cm on Uenotaira) as well since yesterday, so higher up is definitely the place to head for right away if you are on the mountain today.

It should be colder overnight and then tomorrow is due to be a clear and sunny day. Sunday is still forecast to be mild and raining.

It's difficult to know what to write at the moment actually. Obviously we all want conditions to be awesome. At the same time don't want to sound down on things, but need to of course keep it honest. But it's all a bit... dare I say it, spring-like just at the moment. :(

I'll end on a positive note and that is that early next week is looking promising with a return to cold and snowy conditions. Here's hoping it will be a fab Nozawa-like consistent dump and we'll all be smiling again.
