After yesterdays dump the snow has continued overnight delivering an additional 60cm of powder, much to the delight of everyone in Nozawa. This top up was needed and has returned Nozawa Onsen to the magical winter wonderland that we all know and love, with seemingly limitless fresh lines and many buried cars. Add 10cm more this morning since 8am.

At the moment in Nozawa we have cold temperatures and continued snow falls albeit at a lesser intensity in comparison with the last 36 hours. There is also a bit of wind about today, but it is by no means strong.

The Japanese new years holiday has finished and with most of the Japanese guest returning home the resort is markedly quieter. There should be few lift lines on the mountain today! It's weekend tomorrow though so we can expect some crowds.

Snow showers should continue for the rest of the day before a return to clear weather. It should be a brilliant day on the mountain tomorrow with clear sunny weather, cold temps and very light winds forecast.

Looking further ahead, we should see some more snow showers passing through the region on Sunday.
