Look outside, It’s snowing in Nozawa!

by Mark on March 14, 2016

Base at top: 140cm

Temp at Top: -5 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 75cm

New Snow since close: 5 cm

Weather: Snowing throughout the day, very mild wind.


Heavy snow is falling right now across Nozawa! It seemed that yesterday night the forecast changed out of the blue and we’ve been gifted with this. We’re expecting over 15cm throughout the day; a beautiful spring surprise. The pistes should be nice and fast right down to the village today with this fresh snow. It’s coming down fairly hard here in the village though the flakes are falling even more heavily up top; we’re excited to go and see for ourselves!

Winds will be mild again today, becoming heavier in the night as gusts reach around 40km/h over the course of Tuesday. Temperatures aren’t too cold today; we’re looking at around -5°C up top and just above zero down in the village. Looking ahead into the next few days, it looks as though this snow could continue falling into tomorrow before easing up as the clouds disappear and temperatures rise. Wednesday should be beautiful. The snowpack should stay nice and fresh and the sun should be shining down.

Hope to see you up on the slopes today or at the free fondue stall that’s happening today over at the Hikage area from 10.30am!
