Another 40cm of Snow in Nozawa overnight

by Mark on January 28, 2011

The Snow Gods are singing this season in Nozawa Onsen

New Snow; 40cm

Base at Top; 300cm

People sitting at their desks in Tokyo, Sydney or Katmandu must sometimes think I make this stuff up!

We have had another 40cm overnight!
The base is now at a very respectable 300cm and building.

Once again this dump was not forecast the powers to be were saying 1 cm of light snow.
There was a little more than that! It was dumping last night and people were getting covered when they went for a short walk outside.

It will be bottomless powder for the willing this morning and the keen ones were scrambling to get up the hill for first tracks.

Not that it mattered yesterday as you could ski the same course over and over and the tracks were getting filled.
Scary thing is they are actually predicting heavy snow for tomorrow Saturday night so who knows what that will bring.

May be a little sun in the morning before the dump then more next week.
Anyone here or heading up for the weekend should reap some rewards
Cold temps up top today so rug up and if driving up be careful on the roads

Nozawa Onsen back streets great place to get lost for a while
