There is a saying in town that if it snows well 3 times up the top of the mountain then it will snow and settle in the Village. So hopefully the next dump will be a keeper. Still some light snow on the ground in town but don’t think it will last.
Had a few families from Queensland arrive and it was snowing pretty heavy when they got in. For some of the kids it was the first time they have seen snow so were wrapped to throw a few snowballs and have a play.Up top things are looking nice and white with pretty cold temps up top the snow we had has held well. But still not enough for the resort to give the green light on opening today. They ran the Gondola for a while yesterday so gave it a good look but with only about 25cm up top it is not a go as yet. They will open as soon as can so please keep those feet moving.
The forecast is looking like some clear skies this week and another cold front arriving late next week. A group of guests from Villa Nozawa have headed of to Ryuoo Park today to ski. Ryuoo Park is a higher elevation with the top at 1930m and they also have snow machines so have a 1400m beginner run open to slide. With awesome views it should be a good alternative until Nozawa gets going.
