After a fine day yesterday with blue skies and importantly low temperatures, snow clouds moved back over the region and this morning there's a new 30-30cm of fresh fluffy snow to enjoy.

So it's definitely a good morning from here in Nozawa. Couldn't ask for much more in a morning. Well, I suppose we could and we always want more...

But this 30+cm is all important. A good news layer when we really need it to build up base and get more of the resort open.

It is still snowing this morning and probably will continue until sometime this afternoon when it's forecast to ease off and just leave us with cloudy conditions.

As for extra courses and lifts opening today, I do not have any confirmed news at the time of writing this report but it would not surprise me. I am hearing that maybe the Hikage Number 2 pair and Nagasaka Triple lifts will be moving today. If you are in Nozawa check with the ticket counters before you go up for the very latest.

Whatever, it should be great out these this morning. Hope you can get to enjoy it. Wrap up well and don't forget the face mask.
