Heavens open in Nozawa – Powder awaits….

by Mark on January 10, 2011

Where's my car? January dump continues in Nozawa

New Snow- 60cm
Base at Yamabiko – 230cm

Lots of snow!

Not sure what other way to say it, has been snowing heavy all night and the official report is showing new snow of 50cm up top and a massive 65 cm at Uenotaira

We have smashed our way thru the 2m mark and the base up top is currently 230cm.
Everyone is clambering for powder boards and trying to get up and amongst the thick of it for what promises to be a very memorable day for the powder hounds.

On piste should have been groomed last night and have a nice soft layer of fresh snow on top.
Anyway grab the snorkel and go deep.

Outlook is for a bit of brief sun tomorrow morning followed by heavy snow again on Wednesday night.
The shovels will be working overtime to clear the roofs and roads

Anyone driving up or home after the long weekend should take it very easy on the roads
Lots of snow the graders were even clearing the heated roads in town this morning as they could not keep up!

Off to Ski School Nozawa Onsen
