Best day of the season for Nozawa

by Mark on March 2, 2016

Base at top: 210cm

Temp at Top: -8 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 150cm

New Snow since close: 5 cm

Weather: Light snow, fairly cold and mild winds.


With 70cm of snow blanketing Nozawa in just over 24 hours, yesterday quickly became one of the best days of the season. Crowds were few and powder was aplenty, with it being almost too deep in sections. The snow eased up in the middle of the day and the sun was around for most of the afternoon. There were fresh tracks to be found all day long; right up until the last lift of the afternoon.

It is currently still snowing here right down to the village. It’s only light though it all adds up! Winds are fairly mild and the temperature has eased a little, rising to -8°C. Still nice and cold so the powder will still be fresh and the groomers will be corduroy perfection. Temperatures will be rising a bit towards the end of the week so now’s the time to get out and enjoy this powder!

Thanks to everyone for your snow dances! They did not go unnoticed.
