And yet another magnificent day here in Nozawa. The sky does not get much bluer than it is this morning and looks great next to the surrounding white. Temperatures are warming up and should be a terrific day on the mountain.

Yesterday was beautiful up top with great visibility could see all the way to the Sea of Japan. Magic views of all the surrounding resorts too could see Shiga Kogen, Naeba and all the way to Joetsu.
Sunset was spectacular too.

On the snow front just had a few people come down telling me there was still a few nice pockets of powder up top if you know where to look but was getting a little heavy down low.

The outlook is for plenty more sun to come and higher freezing point at about 1000m. It then should drop back down later next week.

Anyway for now enjoy the sublime conditions with over 300cm base up top. Don't forget the sunglasses and sunscreen!

Today is Setsubun day so look out for the flying beans as people throw them out the front door and quickly close it. The meaning is to send the Devil out and bring the good luck in.

Courses open:

All except the following
Uenotaira Half Pipe
Karasawa Wave Park
