More sunshine today in Nozawa

Waking up to another beautiful spring day here in Nozawa Onsen with blue skies, warm weather and no wind. Will be a fun spring day on the slopes ahead.
Yesterday morning was the goods with 10cm of fresh snow, some parts of Yamabiko had boot deep fresh powder between the trees. With the sunshine it made for a beautiful morning glide. It did warm up pretty quick though and it was all over by lunchtime. The snow was still good fun on piste up the very top but got a bit sluggish on the flatter runs. It improved as bit in the afternoon and was a fun run down at about 4pm.
As forecast looks like this southerly Okinawan change is going to grip us for the next few days and bring some rain across the resort. Temps should dip again on Monday and the long range is even showing some snow on the 12th of April. Once we hit April though the fresh snow days are few and far between. Still a huge base to eat thru though so once the rain clears will still be plenty of spring skiing to enjoy. A good vibe around the town as all the locals kick back a bit after the busy winter season.
