Updated with weekend information

Good morning from Nozawa.

It may be 10th April but it is snowing and the lower slopes of Nozawa Onsen once again are looking white. See the images below.

The resort is reporting 8cm on the upper slopes. I just went out and measured 3cm and it is actually coming down in an almost winter-like fashion right now.

The forecast tells us that it should ease off fairly quickly this morning with sunshine expected over the weekend.

For the weekend, the Uenotaira and Paradise quad lifts plan to be running and the courses of the same names will be open. [Updated below]

I will be back with an update early week.
