Weather; Light rain
At the moment we have some light rain falling in the village of Nozawa Onsen. Not ideal conditions but the good news is there is snow on the way. The rain should transition to snow early to mid afternoon, earlier at higher elevations. For those heading up today, stick to the well ridden groomed runs for maximum speed.
Looks like we are in for a great week ahead according to the forecast with a continued run of snow. Moderate falls are predicted overnight and into tomorrow before a clear day on Thursday. Following that a very solid dump is forecast Friday night into Saturday with at least 50cm likely. The long range forecast is simply superb with moderate to heavy falls continuing until the 3rd of February at least.
