Last clear skies in Nozawa for a while

In Japan they call this ocean cloud affect ” Un Kai ” in German “Nebel Meer” not sure what they say in English but it is beautiful to see. Photo by Robert Leck

Weather; Cloudy

Has been a pretty warm night in Nozawa, didn’t need to rug up too much heading for the nightly Onsen.

Was a beautiful day on the slopes yesterday with the great vistas above the clouds and sunny on the higher slopes. Snow conditions were great up high too but a bit heavy down lower.

Pretty cloudy today and looks like they should be snow clouds with the temps dropping. Getting down to 0 degrees at Sea Level by tomorrow night.  We may not see the sun again until next Saturday. Should keep the powder hounds happy!

Tomorrow is the last day of the year and there will be night skiing and festivities on the Nagasaka Slopes under the Gondola with Fireworks and more. If prefer a more traditional way to bring in the new year then head up to the Temple area for the ringing of the bell.

We got some new powder Jones boards in to the rental shop for this season. They are waxed and ready for the next dump. Come and check them out
