Good morning from Nozawa and more things going on this morning.

First of all, fresh snow. By mid afternoon yesterday, the resort was reporting 10-15cm of fresh on the mountain and this morning and other 5cm or so on the upper slopes, so there should be up to 20cm of fresh up there to play in.

And there's more of the resort opening this morning too with more lifts and courses available. And the Snow Park too up there on Uenotaira (though as of yesterday just a 4m rail and mini kicker to be played with).

It's the 'Grand Opening' today as well as I mentioned in a previous report, with an event being held near the top Nagasaka Gondola station from 11am.

While it's feeling good and wintery just at the moment there's a spell of clearer and milder conditions ahead of us. Let's hope the forecast on that score changes as we could of course be doing with more snow to build on what we have rather than a mild spell.

In the meantime though, today should be a lot of fun. I'm off up to meet Nasuki, and perhaps even enjoy some jan-ken with him.
