It has been a slow start this morning with rain drops falling from the sky.

Temperatures are well above freezing and it looks like we need to wait a bit longer for the snow to come. Temperatures are expected to drop through out the day so hopefully we will get the heavy snow which is on the forecast for tonight. Will be a great day to have a hot Onsen after skiing at one of the thirteen free public bath houses in Nozawa.

Turned out to be another blue bird yesterday. To head up early was the key to happiness. Hardly anyone on the slopes and great fun to put in the first tracks on the freshly groomed slopes. As temperatures were rising it got slushy towards the afternoon. But for sure another nice spring day.

Snow is still on the forecast. We are waiting until the temperatures drop and then we should be back to snow by tonight.
