Snow ahead for Nozawa
OK the bad news first, we got hit with some rain last night in town and probably up top too. It has affected the very bottom and lower Karasawa slope is looking like it is probably done for the season. The connection chair is still running though so can still ski over to Nagasaka Gondola. The good news is temps are expected to drop into tonight and we should see some snow on the slopes. Currently sitting just above freezing level up there. Further ahead and a decent dump expected for Sunday night and into Monday, hopefully more than 30cm.

Temperature up top: 1 degrees
New snow since close: 0 cm
