Fire Festival

by Mark on January 16, 2015


Base up top: 350 cm    Temp Top; -4 Degrees

Base at bottom; 210 cm

New Snow since close: 10 cm

Weather; Partly cloudy

Good skiing will be had today in Nozawa Onsen with the heavy snow that feel late yesterday afternoon. The freezing level was sitting quite high so don’t expect the driest snow around. It will be quite wet and heavy on the lower slopes, but still, fresh snow is fresh snow.. We have some mostly cloudy conditions this morning but expect the clouds to clear throughout the day.

Last night the fire festival kicked off down in the village. It was quite a spectacle as usual. There will be more than a few sore heads across the mountain today.

On the forecast front moderate to heavy falls are predicted tonight into tomorrow and then again earlier next week. Isolated snow showers will occur on and off following these two dumps.
