Kids Ski Free today in Nozawa

by Mark on March 18, 2012

Got to bring your A Game to the snow pit in Nozawa Onsen

Base up top: 360 cm        Temperature; +3 Degrees

Base at bottom; 225 cm

New Snow: 0 cm               Weather; Overcast

Pretty overcast start to the day here in Nozawa with nothing falling from the sky at present.

The winds have died and the Nagasaka Gondola and all lifts are back up and operational. The rain yesterday did not do the base any favours and it was a pretty warm day. Almost didn’t need the Jacket at the Festival last night. Was a good night and quite a few people lined the main street for the festivities. Oyu Dori was closed to cars, which is always good to see. Would be nice f one day it was a permanent fixture, maybe even just allow electric golf buggies like in Zermatt. I know there is some talk of it so will have to wait and see.

Good news is temps are on their way down and we are expecting some heavy snow up top tonight. Followed by some sun and light snow over the next few days with freezing levels staying down until Friday.

Free lift tickets for kids today too so a good excuse to get them off the computer games and up the mountain.

The Compass Cup is also on at the end of the month entries close 23rd of March. Go and see Yuta and the gang at Compass house if keen to enter. Conditions are looking like could be epic as always at the end of March!

A crack in the snow at the top of Kandaha make for a good launching pad but take it easy!
