Good morning from Nozawa.

I am writing my report this morning from.... Tokyo, so I'm going on what I have been told on the phone and what the official website is saying this morning. Please keep that in mind!

Looks like there's quite a lot of thin cloud around this morning and an overcast kind of start to the day. The resort was reporting a temperature of -5C on Yamabiko as of 7:15am and... actually, they haven't updated the info for the lower areas yet. I can't confidently put in the new snowfall reported by the resort this morning either as I don't have what they reported yesterday. Oh dear, perhaps I should avoid a report all together this morning! Many apologies. If anyone reading this wants to fill me in, please do contact and we'll happily update!

The forecast says there might be a bit more snow overnight tonight.

I'll be back to Nozawa tomorrow with a proper first-hand report.

LATE SEASON REPORTING
The individual Now reports will continue in each area until the season in that place closes - some will continue daily, some will become less than daily once we get into April.

Once the season has finished everywhere, we will be adding a general season wrap up to each of the reports, where we will also answer questions and comments that we regularly get sent. Some do keep on coming back! The end of season message will be up at the end of Golden Week in early May.

Thank you for reading.
