Epic Snow Fall in Nozawa

by Mark on January 31, 2011

Getting Deep in Nozawa

New Snow 50cm

Base  350cm

It has been an intense time for snow fall in Nozawa Onsen

In the last 2 days we have had around 1 meter of fresh snow fall

Another massive 50cm overnight!

Base now over 350cm up at Yamabiko

For the powder hounds it is paradise for the locals the battle with Mother nature continues.

Still snowing heavily outside at the moment think we are ready for a break.

Roads were treacherous yesterday with ice pot holes and very low visibility

Yesterday on the mountain was awesome if you could find the steeps. On the slopes that had been groomed there was a continuous layer of fresh snow. People were getting buried if the ventured too far off on the sides

We have seen these levels before but not for a few years now. It is epic

Check out the snow on the Bus into Nozawa Snow Town
