Morning from Nozawa.

Actually I am not in Nozawa, rather Tokyo... so this morning I am reporting what I have been told from friends this morning.

This morning it sounds like it is a case of rain lower down and snow higher up - and hopefully snow lower down too later on.

Taking a look at the forecast and after the day of snow we are due today it's likely going to be going into Wednesday when we see the next snowfall and the 6-day forecast also shows those nice words 'heavy snow' on Friday. Let's keep an eye on that.

---

The official snow depth on the Hikage area today is 75cm. On the same day last season, it was 295cm.

I'm only mention this kind of thing again to try show just how 'not normal' this season has turned out to be. Locals are saying that they simply can't remember a season like it.

The good thing to take from it is that - hopefully - it will be a blip and we'll be able to get back to what we expect from next season. I think the important thing is to realise what we have this year, and I highly recommend those of you doing research to read through the archive reports from previous seasons to get a general idea of how things are. You can find them lower down on this page.

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.
