Good morning everyone.

It's April. How fast the season goes. But if all goes to plan Nozawa Onsen plans to be open right through until Sunday 9th May. I plan to be here with you until them. While there might not be much to report in this last part of the season, I like to provide the 'complete' season and keep a record of all the numbers from start to finish.

There's clear blue skies above Nozawa this morning and the sun us out, with a forecast high of about 12C at base later this afternoon. We are expecting a few days of similar conditions.

You can still slide back down to near the Hikage area base, but things get patchy on lower areas now. Any serious sliding is now done on the upper areas of the mountain.

The Nagasaka Gondola, Yamabiko quads and Uenotaira quad lifts plan to be operating today.

-----

The 'Tokyo 2020 Olympics' torch relay comes to Nozawa Onsen this afternoon.

There's going to be some closed roads because of this.

Hopefully many, many people turn up to celebrate this event!

Oh, wait, hold on... perhaps that probably isn't such a good idea. (See: reality).

I'll shut up now. ;)
