Good morning from Nozawa.

Just the top area of the ski resort now remains open - with the Yamabiko, Kokenashi and Bunabayashi (to mid station) courses still available. You now need to take the Gondola back down to base. As for lifts, the Nagasaka Gondola and two top Yamabiko lifts are operating.

I see the resort are actually reporting 5cm of snow on the top Yamabiko area (and a temp of -1C), so that may well be worth a special trip to investigate. Always a bonus to get any kind of fresh snow in the middle of April. It's foggy up there though early on so go prepared.

Rain is falling to the north of Nozawa at the moment but not here. Might well get some spots though clearer skies are forecast for the day.

Snow down at base areas has almost all disappeared and you'll now be seeing farmers getting busy. Things will start getting warmer once again from mid-week onwards.
