Morning from Nozawa where the storm has hit - wind in particular, meaning that the upper areas of the mountain are this morning closed as I write this report. Hopefully they will be able to open if conditions improve but for the moment the open lifts are as noted below and the forecast is for windy conditions for the day.

The resort is reporting 20cm of snowfall on the upper areas this morning and 15cm on the Nagasaka area. A strong northerly wind is blowing snow around making for bad visibility and also lots of drifting which in turn makes it difficult to tell just how much snow has fallen.

There's a heavy snow warning out currently and we expect more today and perhaps quite a lot too. Bring it on, I say.

Forecast is looking pretty good for the coming week too.
