Going to keep it pretty brief today as have an important 'board meeting' to get to!

Conditions are close on perfect today. We had another 30cm plus fall on us since about 3pm yesterday and it is a magical bluebird day in Nozawa. Quite cold too this morning.

It snowed heavy all day yesterday and there was some great powder runs to be had yesterday but it was blizzard like conditions. Not for everyone. But today the wind has dropped now and the skies are blue.

I may have said this before but it is the best day of the season so far! Guess it just keeps getting better. Get up there and enjoy it...

Tomorrow will probably be more cloudy followed by a warmer weekend, and the chance of rain village level before it starts snowing again late Sunday into Monday. So says the current forecast.
