More wet and windy conditions yesterday, and this morning started off cloudy but it has cleared up this afternoon and the sun is out now -- it has turned into a very fine afternoon. It has warmed up considerably as well and has been around 15 degrees in the village earlier on.

There have been some fantastic views of distant low lying cloud from the top of the resort this afternoon.

The snow has (almost) completely melted away from most of the lower half of the resort now but there is still actually pretty good cover 1200m and above. The only slopes that remain open though now are the top Yamabiko courses, being serviced by the Nagasaka Gondola and then the two Yamabiko quad lifts up top.

There is just a week left for Nozawa Onsen this season with the resort planning to be open until the last day of the coming Golden Week holidays, which starts tomorrow and ends next Wednesday (5th May). The only day between tomorrow and next Wednesday that is not officially a national holiday is Friday (30th April) but the run of five holidays from Saturday until Wendnesday should see a fair few people turn up for that last chance of enjoying Nozawa for the season.

Current Official Snow Depths Numbers:

Yamabiko:
140cm

Uenotaira:
105cm

Courses currently open (as of 28th Apr):
Yamabiko A course
Yamabiko B course
Yamabiko C course

Lifts currently operating (as of 28th Apr):

Nagasaka Gondola (both sections);

The resort plans to stay open until 5th May.
