Bit of a bleak morning in Nozawa with light rain falling in the Village. The forecast is promising snow for the top but the cameras are not showing any yet. Temps are set to drop rapidly this afternoon so hopefully some snow for the upper slopes.

Yesterday was a warm spring day probably not the best for the powder hounds but for the kids the sunshine and slower snow was perfect for learning and turning! Here is a link to lessons in Nozawa  http://www.nozawaholidays.com/lesson-registration/

Lots of photos of Cherry blossoms filtering thru from Tokyo and Osaka and “Hanami” is in full swing in the lower lying towns now. Another reason to visit Japan at this time of year.
