A beautiful day is ahead of us in Nozawa. With conditions on the slopes being very icy yesterday, We’re looking forward to the pistes softening a little under the sun. Temperatures are set to reach 0 degrees up top and 8 down in the village; beautiful spring weather. The UV rating is high today so sunscreen is recommended to avoid goggle tans!

The next few days are looking good for the mountain, with temperatures set to fall tonight as clouds move in to place. We should see some snow start falling in the early hours of tomorrow and continue through the day, becoming heaviest tomorrow night. Light snowfalls are expected to push on until Friday keeping the pistes topped up and fresh. Temperatures are looking fairly cold for the rest of the week, sitting between -7°C and -10°C. A bit of a contrast from wearing a t shirt or light sweater today back to full winter gear!

Some of the runs listed below are now closed due to lack of snow.
