Happy New Year from Nozawa Onsen.

Ah yes this is a good way to start a year --- 50cm of fresh snow on the ground and across the mountain. Loads of snow. And it's piling up quickly as well right now with snow really coming down from the skies. It's like it's making some kind of statement!

If your body can accept any more sake after the celebrations of last night, or if you just want to say Happy New Year with other folk at Nozawa, head up to near the Uenotaira Resthouse Yunomine for 11am.

If you can find it of course... visibility is definitely limited for the moment! It's clearly much colder as well this morning. There's a heavy snow warning out for the region at the moment and snow is expected to continue falling for the day and into tomorrow.

Brave the conditions though to be rewarded with copious amounts of powder.
