Good morning from Nozawa.

Especially come spring (and early season) there are days when it has been snowing up top but it's either been doing nothing (or raining) down below here at base. This morning the resort is reporting 6cm of fresh snow up on the top Yamabiko and Uenotaira runs - and there's none here at base - so you know where to head!

I was away for most of yesterday so I missed the day and what it brought, but it's good to hear this morning that it has snowed on the mountain.

Lots of cloud this morning and limited visibility on upper areas of the resort, but forecasts point to some sunshine being with us today so it might quickly change.

After todays national holiday things should be back to normal come tomorrow once again. The forecast tells me sunny skies tomorrow, to be followed by the chance of some snow later in the week (though some forecasts do not agree with the snow bit).

From today until Friday 25th March, the Yamabiko B Course will be closed to the general public as it is going to be used for a competition event.
