Yet more phenomenal dumpage to report in Nozawa Onsen. It snowed for most of the day yesterday and then got really silly in the evening. It was going hard this morning and the resort is reporting an amazing 55cm of new snow. 5 days ago we could see a tree and a few houses out of our back window, they are a distant memory now as almost 2 metres of snow has completely blocked any vision. However, I must admit that I quite prefer the current view.

About 30 minutes ago the snow stopped and some blue sky even opened up. Those lucky enough to be first down skyline and onto the blacks, or Challenge and Schneider on the Hikage side will undoubtably be treated to a minute of pure bliss unlikely to be rivaled in this lifetime. Lift lines should be somewhat better than last weekend, but we should probably expect a busy resort once again.

We are expecting more heavy snow from this afternoon and through tomorrow. The weekend crowds usually cut into snow depths a little, but hopefully we can see the base crawl up to 3.7 metres on Yamabiko, making 2007/2008 an officially 'average' season for Nozawa Onsen.
