Good morning from Nozawa.

The sun is out! It's a fine morning and calm too. Which is nice.

OK so there are some big changes in ski area operations from today.

4 lifts are officially planned to be open today - the Nagasaka Gondola, the two top Yamabiko quads and the Uenotaira quad. (Though early morning it looks like the Hikage triple lift is also open, even though it's not on the list).

Much of the ski area covered by those lifts actually remains open and you can still slide back down to base.

Lift tickets are also cheaper now.

-----

It shouldn't be surprising, of course, but it always seems to end up being surprising... just how quickly snow melts and the earth appears when the snow gets thin on the ground. That last bit goes really fast in warm conditions.

Take the base Karasawa area as an example. What seems like all of a sudden, there's more brown than white remaining on there.

Nagasaka remains mostly covered but that area is probably due a similar story fairly soon.

Hikage in better shape.

And of course the top areas still have a decent amount of snow, so no cover issues up there.
