Dumping again today in Nozawa

by Mark on January 25, 2016

Base at top:  140 cm

Temp at Top; -13 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira  115 cm

New Snow since close: 10 cm       

Weather: Snowing!


The snow was dumping yesterday. There were fresh tracks to be found all day with a good lot of snow accumulating across the whole mountain. All the lifts were open, and there was a brief hour long period of sunshine in the middle of the day. This surprised us all but meant we could all make the most of some of the fresh morning powder. Snow started falling again in the afternoon, this time heavier and fluffier. We were expecting a lot more snow to come overnight but that was downgraded and we ended up with about 7cm which is still a nice top up for the mountain.

Today’s looking like it’ll keep snowing through the morning and ease up in the afternoon to make way for some blue skies and warmer temperatures tomorrow. Temperatures will be cold again today, and the winds will still be blowing, so the more sheltered areas should have better snowpack.

We’re all excited about the good snowfall we’ve been getting here and we hope it’s an indication of a good season ahead!
