Morning from Nozawa.

There's quite a lot of cloud around but it feels like it is clearing and indeed sun is on the local forecasts.

It will be another fairly warm spring day and similar lined up for tomorrow too - slightly warmer still.

Lower areas seem to all of a sudden gotten rather dirty looking - always sad to see, but of course inevitable without fresh snow falling. The Karasawa slope area at base is now showing lots of ground. Farmers will be happy and trying their best to clear the snow to get cracking with their spring work.

There's still a lot of snow around on the mountain though and absolutely no snow cover issues on the upper slopes.

You can still ski or snowboard back down close to the Hikage base area - from where you can get on a shuttle bus back over to the base of the Nagasaka Gondola if you want to get back up top. Snow conditions are better higher up though, so I expect that most people will be staying up there for most of the day.
