March a good time for touring around Nozawa

by Mark on March 23, 2012

Lots of snow expected over the next few days up top in Nozawa

Base up top: 370 cm        Temperature; 2 Degrees

Base at bottom; 220 cm

New Snow: 0 cm               Weather; Overcast

Fairly grey warm morning in Nozawa and as expected we are getting hit with some rain in the village, but the resort is reporting snow up top.

With the freezing level up pretty high will be a bit of a tale of two mountains for the next two days with rain down low but snow up higher. Until Saturday night when the freezing level will drop and snow is expected in the village too.

The forecast is now for heavy snow tomorrow up top, which is great to see. With the temps on the way back down should be some pretty good powder about.

Yesterday was not a bad day in the mountains. March is always a good time to strap on the skins and head off into the beautiful surrounding terrain. Better weather and still plenty of snow making for some fun tours. Yesterday a few of the gang headed North all the way down to nearby Sakae Village nice ski, great outdoor onsen and a mountain picnic always enjoyable.

Nice ride down to Sakae Mura takes longer to drive than ski!
