Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 25 March 2017

Cracking start to the weekend! With about 15 cm of fresh snow and currently sitting at -7 up top this morning, it certainly doesnt feel like spring?? Base up at Yamabiko is now measuring a whopping 430cm with lots of fresh tracks yet to be had. Today we can expect the mountian to be a little bit more busier than the last few days as the weekend tourists would have been arriving last night and this morning.
