After a busy day on the slopes yesterday, we should be back to normal today.

New snow wasn't expected and I don't have any to report this morning. It was cold overnight with a low of -9C, and just after 8am this morning it's -7C here in the village. Sun is expected today and a warm up to around freezing point at base.

It's a mix of blue sky and grey/white cloud this morning over Nozawa but like I said the forecast is for clear conditions today. Perhaps a dusting of snow overnight tonight, but more decent snow is due later Friday and Saturday - though on Saturday we need it to keep on the colder side of the forecasts. It does seem that it will be a bit warmer on Saturday, so down in the village it may be giri-giri borderline wet rather than the snow - though likely the upper part of the mountain will be straight into snow. But we need to keep an eye on that.

The weather somehow still doesn't seem to want to stay in the mid-winter heavy snow mode for a prolonged period of time which is unfortunately becoming something of a theme for this season.

But anyway, it might not be knee-deep powder out there today but there's tons of fun to be had. Go find it, that's what I'm going to do!
