Good news everyone!

And as I am sure many are saying this morning ---- this is so much more like it! 'It' being what we expect in Nozawa, I suppose.

Yesterday afternoon, the resort was reporting 20cm of fresh snowfall on the upper slopes, and this morning they are adding 35cm. So I make that 55cm of snowfall on the upper areas since yesterday morning.

:)

A more modest amount down at base - in the afternoon they were reporting 2cm and this morning no official number yet. But I am going to provisionally add 20cm to my report (but I am going to go out and check that in a few places, so I may update it).

Whatever, a very good new layer and conditions should be well worth checking out this morning up there.

As far as I can tell, resort operations (lifts and courses) remains the same as yesterday for the moment.

We might not get any further snow for a few days, but the snow is due back in time for New Years Eve and beyond.

The Opening Festival for the season will take places on the upper Yamabiko area.

If the free food and drink that is promised is not enough to tempt you, how about the chance to meet your favourite bright green vegetable that likes to ski 'Nasuki'? Chance!
