New Snow 20cm

Base @ Yamabiko 285cm

It has been snowing pretty consistently in Nozawa this morning since about 7 am.  Nice to see the snow again – it is a bit wet down low but should be falling well up on the upper slopes of the mountain.

Yesterday was another warm day especially down low where we experienced Spring-like snow conditions.  The southerly winds probably had a bit to do with that as well but it felt like spring.

Up high was still nice though but pretty busy – one of the peak weekends of the season.  Today will be quiet again and should continue until Friday which is the first day of a three day weekend (National Holiday.

The outlook is good now with a snow then sun rhythm coming in again with decent falls expected every second day.  Temperatures look like they will be pretty up and down too.

Anyway still snowing outside so time to get up there.

The photo above was taken by one of our guests  thought it was a pretty special one. Myoko is about a 60km drive from Nozawa and can take about 1 Hour depending how you drive. They have had an amazing amount of snow there too this season with Seki Onsen weighing in at about a 5 meter base at the peak!
