Good morning from Nozawa and we have a fresh blanket of snow with the resort reporting 15cm of fresh snowfall on the upper Yamabiko and Uenotaira areas this morning. Colder too as well. It is not snowing as I write this report but snow is expected on and off during the day today, with temperatures not rising that much over freezing. Currently it is -1C here at base.

Should be some improved conditions up top this morning then and they are set to improve more in the coming days with decent snowfall forecast for tonight and into tomorrow and hopefully a bit beyond as well. The cold is going to continue as well with low temperatures tomorrow in particular expected.

I am hoping that my report tomorrow morning will bring you some exciting snow news.

In the meantime, a lot of people are expected in Nozawa this weekend. Early starts recommended especially as the whole mountain is not yet open.

Until tomorrow. Let it snow!
