It has bas been a while since we had this rhythm beating in Nozawa - we had been getting used to constant snow. But this morning is a magnificent day with at least 10cm of fresh snow and glorious sunshine.

Yesterday was more or less a carbon copy with pristine conditions all over the resort and about 20cm of fresh. Everyone was back down as late as possible enjoying the magic sunset.

The snow is supposed to continue today and a bit tomorrow then blue bird on Sunday but at the moment it is pretty bright outside at the moment though looks like it might be starting to cloud over soon.
