Good morning from Nozawa and a beautiful one it is too.

Back to yesterday though...

I remember saying yesterday that we were expecting the snow clouds to clear in the morning, but things didn’t happen that way with snow continuing to fall through most of the day and the resort as of 3pm reporting 10-14cm more snowfall on the slopes:

Yamabiko - 14cm
Uenotaira - 10cm
Hikage - 14cm
Nagasaka - 14cm
Karasawa - 14cm

Things looked much clearer last night and this morning we are starting the day with clear skies.

It’s a very cold early morning but the sun should warm things up a bit as we move on but hopefully not too much. Should keep pretty cold looking at the latest local forecast.

Kamoshika course and a few other steeper courses not yet open. All lifts operating today though so plenty of space for everyone.

A stunning day to be on the mountain.

A bit of news about lift operations for the New Year. On the following days, lifts will be opening 30 minutes earlier than usual with the lower lifts starting at 8am and the Gondolas starting up at 8:10am:

Tuesday 30th December
Wednesday 31st December
Friday 2nd December
Saturday 3rd December

Wednesday is, of course, New Years Eve and there'll be a few events going on to celebrate and bring in the new year. First of all nighta at the Nagasaka area will be open from 4:30pm until 11:30pm on Wednesday. There'll be sake and hot wine to sample from 11pm until midnight and once the New Year arrives there'll be a firework display. Sounds like fun!
