Morning from Nozawa.

It's raining this morning folks.

Not the nicest of mornings and after rain overnight there's a real 'wet' feel. We are all hoping that it will stop by the middle of the day and might even clear up later on.

Tomorrow should be clearer but warmer still with temperatures rising to close on 20 degrees in the village.

Snow conditions are very much spring-mode and starting to look a bit dirty on lower areas - is that the yellow sand thing going on? Still, it's up top that people are heading and there's still a whopping 3.5m of official snow depth up there. It's going to take a while for that lot to melt.

Looks like the Skyline course is back open.
