Move over bluebird days.. Snow is on its way at Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on January 5, 2016

Base at top:  80 cm

Temp at Top; -3 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira  70 cm

New Snow since close: 1 cm       

Weather; Cloudy, snow flurries later in the day

The snowcams are looking like it’s getting cloudy up the top and the temperatures seem to have dropped a little since yesterday. It’s still not as cold as we’d like around the mountain but it seems we’ll just have to wait for Thursday. Thursday is looking like it’ll be a great day for us with the arrival of a moderate storm which should keep the snow dumping all day long right down to the village. Friday morning will ease up a bit before a big system moves in over Nozawa during the night.

At this stage, Saturday is expected to be the biggest dump yet for this season! Everyone here is hanging out to ride some good powder and it looks like this weekend we may all get the chance!
