Yesterday was a mild day in the region and as we expected, really great sunny skies.

There's more cloud this morning and the forecast tells us that more cloud is expected and perhaps rain by this evening -- and, fingers crossed, snow. And probably straight to snow on the open higher areas of the resort. Here's to lower temperatures.

The forecast is looking promising too...

The Uenotaira course is closed again now weekdays this week. Hopefully by the time next weekend rolls around we'll have a fair amount more snow and more of Nozawa Onsen will be able to open up.
