Good morning from Nozawa.

Sadly, I have to bring you the rather inevitable news of a delayed opening this morning. Yes, Nozawa isn't going to be able to open on Saturday as planned, so they are now into 'stand-by' mode and will open as soon as there is enough snow.

Yesterday at 10am they were reporting 10cm of snow on the upper Yamabiko area.

Good to see a thin sprinkling of snow lower down though and there are spots of rain this morning.

As you can see from the images today, it's a rather thick and foggy/cloudy kind of morning.

Over the weekend some milder temps are forecast and there's more of a chance of rain than snow even higher up if the forecasts are correct. So think that the delay in opening will be for at least a week...

Nozawa Onsen will open as soon as is possible - when there is enough snow to do so!
