At the moment we have some light snow flurries and light winds here in Nozawa Onsen.

Testing the conditions out this morning we have some fun riding on offer at the top area of the mountain. There is about 10-12cm of fresh and the base layer isn't too icy either; at least in the Yamabiko area. As you ride to the lower half you will notice there are decreasing amounts of fresh and it is quite icy as well. Therefore it is best to stick to the top half today. The resort is reporting about 3cm of snow since yesterday.

Visibility is variable this morning as clouds move over the peak. At times ok, otherwise poor. There are some fantastic ice coated trees across the mountain, worthwhile taking the camera to capture the spectacle.

Unfortunately yesterday morning's snow showers did not last, and it turned into rain at about 1pm.

Thankfully the top half escaped being hit with the liquid snow so damage is limited to down on the lower slopes of the mountain. The poor conditions forced most people indoors so the slopes were very un-crowded.

We expect snow showers to continue today and the next day and the next day and so on. All in all we expect cold temps snow showers of varying intensity to last until next Tuesday. Heavier dumps are expected tomorrow, Friday night and Sunday night. A lot of potential looking at the forecast. Let's hope it happens.
