Morning folks on this second day of the long weekend.

No fresh snow to report this morning and this morning it's a mix of blue sky and thin cloud over Nozawa. It is currently -4C so a cold start to the day as well though it will get into low positive numbers later on.

There is no change in what is open either this morning - we'll likely need the upcoming fresh snow for that - with all lifts apart from Kanahar and most courses available. Another busy day is expected.

There may be rain/sleet due for the village and lower areas sometime during tonight and tomorrow - straight into snow up top? - but beyond that the forecast is looking very promising. The most promising it has looked all season so far. It looks like we can expect some very decent snowfall in the coming week. Proper Nozawa-like snowfall. We expect, let's hope it happens...
