Good morning from Nozawa.

Feels more like April than March this morning but the sun is out and it's a fine day and so some fun spring skiing to be had. Just wish it felt more like mid winter of course. Can't do anything about that though can we.

Today it'll warm up to around 10 degrees and tomorrow it is going to be warmer still. Rain is due either tomorrow or Monday (forecasts don't agree with each other). Whatever, today will definitely be the better of the two weekend days.

Looking ahead a bit further and there's some snowfall on the forecasts for around the middle of next week along with a return to cold conditions. So we can hopefully look forward to some fresh next week.

In the meantime, have a good Saturday. I'm seeing a few people outside in t-shirts...

It's festival time tonight in Nozawa over on the Hikage area - events start at 7:35pm with fireworks due for lift off from 8:50pm. There's be a number of things going on as well as some free sweet sake so maybe worth taking a look. Weather looks like it is going to co-operate as well.

There are a few course closures (to the general public) in the coming days due to some ski races being held, as below:

Today until Tuesday 8th March: the Mizunashi A course will be closed.
