100 Years of skiing in Japan celebration tonight

by Mark on March 3, 2012

Lubos still finding some use for the Fat skis in early March. Skis have come a long way in 100 Years

Base up top: 380 cm           Temperature; -4 Degrees

Base at bottom; 250 cm

New Snow: 5 cm                           Weather; Sunny

Starting to get used to these warmer sunny days in Nozawa. Went up to the kid’s park today for a play and there were kids everywhere having a ball.

Preparations were under way for tonight’s Festival and looking good. There was also a lot of action over on the Kandaha racecourse with a big downhill race meet starting tomorrow. So quite a buzz around town. Crowds not as big as past weekends but with 6000 guests recorded not too bad.

On the mountain was pretty foggy up high early but has blown off a bit now. Snow was a bit soft in places but the groomers were pretty nice.

Looking ahead it is a bit of a mixed bag with winds also all over the place. Hope by the end of the week we should see some cooler temps and a bit of snow on the radar. Anyway will be a fun weekend in town so get into the celebrations, stay safe and have a great time.

A lot of snow has dissapeared in the Village still a huge base up high and lots of houses in igloo mode!
