Another March Dump in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on March 10, 2011

Dumping in Nozawa again, heading up to the Lifts from Villa Nozawa

New Snow: 50cm

Base at Yamabiko; 340cm

Huge snow fall in Nozawa with 50cm of fresh being recorded overnight.
It started to snow very heavy from about 5pm yesterday and has not stopped.
Is going to be a powder hounds paradise on the mountain today with all this fresh snow and very few people around.

Can never understand why people are super keen in Januray and February then seem to forget about skiing and boarding in March, especially when it tends to consistently deliver great snow. Anyway more untracked conditions for the stayers!

Yesterday was a beautiful morning and nice up the top but a little crusty in places then got colder and the weather started to close in as the day got on.

The outlook is for the sun to make an appearance later today which it is trying to do now then more snow tomorrow followed by a fine weekend and then heavy snow again next week.

Good times just keep rolling in Nozawa.
