Good morning from Nozawa.

After the rather windy and wet day we ended up with yesterday, it's calmer this morning. Though there's still a lot of cloud around and looking rather dramatic as well from the looks of the Paradise webcam. And wow the snow has almost all gone from the lower Karasawa area now... it sure melts up quick in when it gets thin on the ground in spring. Still, official snow depth of 265cm up at Yamabiko, continuing to impress!

Again looking at the webcam images it would seem that there's some thick fog up top at the start of the day.

Perhaps things will clear up.

Tomorrow should be clearer as well, though it won't be quite as warm as it has been in recent days.

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.
