Good morning from Nozawa.

And it is looking like it will be a cracker.

The snow clouds have cleared and the sun should be having a headline role to play today.

It was cold overnight but it is going to be somewhat milder during the day today, maybe rising to around +5C later on down at village.

It will probably be similarly milder tomorrow too... before more snow Tuesday/Wednesday.

There's not massive amounts of snow yet, but enough to have a great day out there. You can now ride back down to base via the winding Rinkan (Forest) course.

Lots more this coming week please!
