Heavy snow fall on its way

by Mark on April 2, 2012

View from the Gondola towards Mt. Kenashi this morning. Fresh dust of snow up top.

Base up top: 360 cm        Temperature: 0 Degrees

Base at bottom: 190 cm

New Snow: 3 cm               Weather: Sunny

Yesterday was the last day of the year that all the skilifts on the mountain were operating. But don’t worry. Nozawa Onsen has still plenty of snow and lifts ready for you. The following lifts are still running:
Yamabiko Gondola, Yamabiko chair, Yamabiko 2ND chair, Uenotaira chair, Skyline Link, Hikage chair

Good conditions yesterday with some fresh powder to enjoy up top and the sun out at times. Closed in towards the afternoon with light snow falling from the sky.

Today the early morning clouds gave way to a nice blue sky pretty quickly. Great views from the top of Yamabiko with a fresh dust of snow on the slopes. The snow covered trees looked absolutely stunning.

A lot of snow on the forecast this week. It all starts with heavy snow fall tomorrow night, then pretty much snow all Wednesday and Thursday. Looks like we will get a few nice dumps. And this in April. How good is that.

Makes me laugh every time I pass that sing. "Never come back happen a disaster..."
