Morning from Nozawa.

Anyone else get to enjoy yesterday? I had a blast. Glad I wrapped up well, felt cold out there.

This morning there's a bit more snow - Nozawa are reporting 15cm on the upper Yamabiko area, and varying less amounts in others.

It is definitely not as cold as it was yesterday.

Visibility looks very limited up top but perhaps that will clear.

So we have a weekend just ahead of us. It's usually on of the busier ones. Peak season, of course. And also Monday is a national holiday in Japan, so it's a 3-day break for many people. Expect Nozawa to be busy.

Weather should be generally fine with a good chance of sunshine (and very little chance of fresh snow). Sunscreen recommended as well as an early start to beat some of the crowds.

Next snow? Look to late on Tuesday onwards.
