Morning from Nozawa.

It was another fine day yesterday in the region though warming up quite a bit as well - felt rather spring-like once again with snow unfortunately melting again.

One thing about this is strange and abnormal season (in terms of weather and snowfall) is how even when we do get some decent snowfall, it seems to be quickly followed up with warmer conditions that aren't the kindest to the snow conditions.

As things are and after the warmth of the last few days, as you might expect the better snow conditions are to be found on higher areas of the mountain.

This morning there's lots of cloud around and it's just over +1C here in the village. Temperatures are due to rise to about +6C later on with the freezing level rising to nearly 2500m. Unfortunately, we're very probably going to get rained on later...

The good news is that it should be turning into snow overnight with snow forecast for the day tomorrow along with colder conditions. Then we have regular snow on the forecast through lots of next week with potentially quite a lot again later on Tuesday.

Let's hope that is right. Fingers crossed! For the sake of the length of the season, we need as much base as possible.

There is currently an issue with the 'Yu Road' which means that for the time being it will be open going towards the resort from 8am to 2pm and then coming back down towards the village from 2pm until 5:10pm.
