The ridiculous is now bordering on the insane on the snow front in Nozawa with another huge 60cm of snow on our doorstep this morning. The powder hounds are going to be in their element again today and will be deep bottomless champagne powder on tap for anyone keen to brave the conditions.

So we have had close to 2 meters of fresh snow in just a 3-day period and still absolutely dumping outside at the moment. Think it has been about 8 years since we had such a good start to the season. At that time it snowed every day from December 1st to December 31st.

Yesterday on the mountain was amazing snow under foot and tracks were getting filled in quickly giving powder potential even on the groomers. Visibility was limited though and the light was flat but it was an great Christmas day had by all.

Back to a weekday today so there will be fewer people on the mountain so for the lucky ones here conditions for skiing will be amazing. Rug up though, as it is -10 degrees and strong winds. The roads in Nozawa are pretty hard going now with the deluge of snow taking over.

Looks like we should get some sunshine by Wednesday and seems strange for a ski resort to hope for, but we are really looking forward to a break in the snow!
