Base up top: 430 cm    Temp Top; 2 Degrees

Base at bottom; 250 cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm

Weather; Showers


With light rain showers meandering over Nozawa Onsen today marks a good down day to rest and recuperate. Overnight rainfall in combination with warm temperatures has turned the snow into moist slush that is sticky in all but the most well trafficked areas. Head up to Yamabiko for slightly better snow quality.

Luckily the freezing level is forecast to decline later in the day and the rain will turn to snow above 1000 meters. The freezing level will remain at this elevation with isolated showers until Thursday when another spike in temperatures is predicted. Following this some moderate to significant snow across the mountain is forecast for Friday.
