Base up top: 380 cm    Temp Top; -2 Degrees

New Snow since close: 5 cm

Weather; Mostly fine


For the second day on the month we have some fresh snow! About 5cm has fallen on the upper mountain since last lifts. This is great news after the rainfall we experienced yesterday, which was the heaviest of the season so far. With a temperature at the summit of -2C the fresh snow will not be the super dry powder we normally have fall in Nozawa Onsen, but it is certainly better than nothing!

Today the best riding will be had above the gondola mid station which was the approximate snowfall level last night. Make sure to hit the slopes early to experience the best snow conditions as the spring sun is particularly strong at this latitude.

According to the forecast we will have some slightly warmer temperatures and its possible there will be some more rain and strong winds tomorrow. Saturday is expected to be clear before a tropical system makes its presence know with rainfalls from Sunday to Tuesday. From Tuesday colder temperatures will move through with the potential for snow.
