Good morning from Nozawa. And Happy New Year!

There were lots of people out and about until the New Year rolled in, enjoying the firework display. I think most skipped the extended nighta to have a few drinks and then come back for the celebrations. I know that's what I did, though I must admit that the second part of yesterday is something of a haze.

This morning we can't see much down at base. It's foggy. (A bit like my head). Though I expect that to clear pretty soon - perhaps the fog quicker than my head!

Light snow has been falling as well with the resort reporting 2cm of fresh snow up on the top areas. Nothing down below and we expect the day to be generally cloudy.

It looks like the lower part of the Skyline course is closed again along with Kitsuki and Usagi.

Our next delivery of snow; perhaps we will see that come Tuesday. Temperatures are still tracking on the 'higher than usual' side of things - we could really do with a change to that pattern...
