Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 22 March 2017

Pow Pow Pow!!! 

Waking up full of excitement this morning after yesterdays rain. Always nice to look out the window in the morning with everything covered in snow. The Mountain has measured a fresh 15cm of new snow up top early this morning.Temperatures have dropped well below zero last night and still sitting about -6 up top of the mountain today with the snow just dumping down.

Freezing level is between 600 to 800 meters with not much sign of the snow stopping. Should be a good day for all those powder-hounds out there in search of fresh tracks. Be careful though as this fresh snow might be sitting on top of some cruddy areas after Mondays really warm day and yesterdays rainy day.

We have snow in the forecast for all of today right through until Friday afternoon so its looking like a good couple of powder days. Could be a great chance to head on down to Nozawa Central Rental shop to try out their Powder range before the sun comes back…

Have fun and stay safe…….
