From Extreme to extremely good in Nozawa

Searching out the powder in the trees in Nozawa


Base up top: 310 cm                  Temperature; -10 Degrees

Base at bottom; 200 cm

New Snow: 35 cm

Mother Nature hit us pretty hard yesterday evening with almost 30cm of snow falling in around 3 Hours, was spectacular to watch. The snow piled up pretty quick.

Then this morning the sun came out and provided us with a magic day. Conditions on the slopes are as good as it gets and some of the powder runs were beautiful. On piste too was great with a bit of powder on top of the groomed.

It has started to snow lightly again now and should continue throughout the day then we are in for another fairly decent fall tomorrow night and light thru the weekend.

Next week something we have not seen for a while but a row of sunshine looks like it may be on the menu. Have a bunch of Italians here in town at the moment, they have travelled far to taste the famous Japanese powder and as they headed up this morning they had that satisfied look in their eyes.

The Italian powder job hits Nozawa Onsen - Tanta Neve! Bellisimo
