Woke up to blizzard like conditions this morning in Nozawa - again a bit unexpected. We were expecting light snow and even a bit of sun but it is wild and wooly out there now. Official reports are showing about 20cm has fallen but the measuring sticks are probably a bit out with all the wind. My windscreen is telling me it is about 30cm of fresh again.

Today will have been challenging but rewarding on the mountain and there should be plenty of fresh tracks on offer with the snow still falling heavy outside this afternoon.

Yesterday was belissimo on the slopes the snow gave way to glorious sunshine in the afternoon and with half a meter of fresh snow it was magic in places. A lot of the well-worn slopes did get tracked out and moguled up with the weekend crowd though. Down low too the snow was a little on the wet side as the day quickly warmed up.

But could not fault the conditions and the town was bustling last night with a few events on and plenty of happy skiers lining the main street.

I am a little shy at making any outlooks as the forecast has been under estimating the snow fall for a while now. However it looks although we may see a nice pattern of sun and snow coming over the next few days so happy times ahead.
