Morning from Nozawa and we have a fresh layer of snow this morning.

Around 5cm at base but up to 20cm of fresh snow is being reported on the upper Yamabiko and Uenotaira courses... so you know where to head this morning! The snowfall probably won't continue for much beyond lunchtime today, so let's get some more cm in!

We're expecting sunshine and mild conditions tomorrow.

Tomorrow evening there's a big event going on over on the Hikage area. It starts at 7pm with a live act (so I believe) and then there's other things going on like a ski torch lit display and then the fireworks which should begin at around 9pm. No doubt our favourite friendly green vegetable character 'Nasuki' will be making an appearance too. Which in itself will make being there be worth it. :)
