A little more sun for Nozawa today before some heavy snow comes our way

by Mark on February 28, 2016

Base at top: 150cm

Temp at Top: -4 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 95cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm

Weather: fairly clear, clouds developing and winds increasing.


It’s been a beautiful few days here. The piste conditions have held up surprisingly well in the past few days, given the warmer temperatures we’ve had combined with some sun. Up top things were starting to get a little icy in parts yesterday afternoon, though there were still plenty of fast turns and smooth runs to be had.

Temperatures are going to be somewhat warmer today, possibly softening the snowpack as the day progresses. This being said, Temperatures will drop by tomorrow as some dark clouds are expected to move in. Heavy snow should be falling the whole day long and continue to light snow on Tuesday. Temperatures should be fairly low for a couple days after the dump, keeping the snowpack fresh and powdery. Tonight is the time to start snow dancing; Let’s hope we wake up to see snow falling outside!
