Bluebird powder day

by Mark on February 17, 2013

Sunset in Nozawa

Base up top: 370cm        Temp Top; -16 Degrees

Base at bottom: 195cm

New Snow since close: 15cm

It’s a bright blue sunny day here in Nozawa Onsen. We have had a nice top up of powder with 15cm being recorded across the resort (Uenotaira recorded slightly more at 20cm). It should be another good days riding across the groomed runs and the trees.

Yesterday was an awesome day as heavy snow and extremely cold temperatures continued. We had about 60cm fall; enough so it felt bottomless through the trees. It was slightly crowded but the superb snow conditions made up for it.

The forecast continues to look good. We still expect a warm spell tomorrow with the possibility of some rain down low/snow up high. The following day we should see very cold temperatures and snow continue for quite a few days.
