Good morning to you all from Nozawa.

It's keeping on the cold side at the moment.

Looks like we should enjoy some decent weather conditions today but temperatures might be struggling to hit double digits. From tomorrow, we can expect slightly warmer conditions.

Check out the webcam image from the base Hikage area this morning. It's looking a bit of a mess isn't it!? Further along, the Karasawa area is now looking rather dry with most of the snow now gone.

But not to fear - there's still an impressive 2.5m of snow up top, and that is where the action is. I haven't been over to that area but it looks like you can still ski or snowboard back down close to the Hikage base - 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. I wholly recommend staying up top though - the snow is much more plentiful... and cleaner!
