Fresh powder once again

Heading towards the sunset. Perfect conditions still in Nozawa Onsen.

Base up top: 375 cm        Temperature; -2 Degrees

Base at bottom; 220 cm

New Snow: 10 cm               Weather: Snowing

Fresh snow once again in Nozawa. Hard to believe after the warm spring temperatures yesterday afternoon. Was bucketing this morning and we got more than five centimeters of fresh snow down here in the village in under one hour. It is still snowing lightly out the window right now, so looks like another good powder day up top.

Yesterday was a day like in a picture book here in Nozawa. Cloudless blue sky all day long, good snow conditions up top and you could see people sunbathing down in the village. And the best thing about it, the slopes are all yours with very few skiers on the mountain. A wonderful sunset was the perfect end to this fantastic day.

Today it will keep on snowing through out the day before we are back to a clear, cloudless sky tomorrow. Heavy snow on the forecast this weekend. The winter continues here in Nozawa Onsen.

The perfect setting. Looking at the Nozawa House from the free Shinju Pair Lift.
