Good morning from Nozawa.

The good news is that Nozawa seem to be reporting 15cm of fresh up on the top Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas so something of a refresh to be expected up there.

Just slightly more than a dusting down to lower levels this morning but we are hoping for some decent snowfall tonight. There is some light snow lingering early this morning but it is likely going to stop and there might be some sun today.

Fingers crossed I can post a good snowy report tomorrow.

Lift operations and course openings remain the same for now. More will open up as soon as there is enough snow.
