Good morning from Nozawa.

And what do you know!? There's a thin covering of snow right down to lower levels this morning. Enough to even give Kawasawa and Nagasaka areas that speckled look. Enough to just about make a mini snowman... or perhaps a mini Naski. 1-2cm in places and I'm feeling generous to award this late showing 2cm on my report.

That lower base area snow will probably be gone by late morning.

More importantly, the ski area is reporting 4cm of snowfall on the top Yamabiko area.

There is a lot of cloud still around, but we are due sun today - and sun for the whole day tomorrow too as things start to warm up again.

-----

PS I forgot to add the 3cm to the total number yesterday. So today I have added 7cm (3cm from yesterday, 4cm from today) to keep that up to date.

PPS Tomorrows report will appear very late because of some website technical work going on.

-----

All base areas are now closed, so you need to get the gondola back down from upper areas that remain open.

Lifts open today (planned):
Nagasaka Gondola, two Yamabiko quad lifts, Uenotaira quad, Paradise quad

Courses open today (planned):
All Yamabiko courses, Uenotaira, Paradise
