Hello and good morning from Nozawa.

The big news at the time of writing (just before 9am) is that there seems to be some kind of safety checks going on at the Nagasaka Gondola and therefore the Gondola is not moving yet. Hopefully they'll get that sorted quickly, but best to check with them if you are on your way out this morning.

Lots of cloudy still around and limited visibility on the top slopes -- they actually seem to be reporting snow falling up there (though no new cm), and there has been a few spots of rain down here too -- but fine weather is actually on the forecast for today. So a fast clear-up, perhaps?

The relatively cold conditions are definitely continuing for the moment though.

Tomorrow should be warmer.

We usually see things heating up for the Golden Week holidays - next week - so it'll be interesting if we see that happen this year too. It felt unseasonably cold yesterday, that's for sure!
