Quiet day on the slopes in Nozawa Onsen

Nozawa has some amazing Susets. Check out that snow bank on the right compared to the guy walking to the Onsen. Photo by Gabriel Sutter. Thanks Gab

Base up top: 395 cm                  Temperature; -2 Degrees

Base at bottom; 280 cm

New Snow: 0 cm

The day started off like yesterday with a bit of sun and some scattered cloud. With no wind was a beautiful morning. Around lunchtime some darkish storm clouds have engulfed the resort and even a little bit of very light snow is falling down low.

Can’t see what is going on up top with the cloud cover but reports were it was really nice on the groomers early and still some powder stashes around the place.

Yesterday was magic all day and the fine weather skiers were in their element. More sun expected for tomorrow too and very quiet on the slopes, lift lines are non existent.

A bit of precipitation building for Thursday now so lets hope it is the good kind!

On the agenda we have the tour to the Snow Monkeys tomorrow Wednesday and then again on Saturday. Soba making and eating night on Thursday. A few people off to Hamcho Sushi tonight. But better get in early as they can only seat about 15! Very cool intimate dining experience for anyone that loves thier sushi.

Kiku a master of the knife and gituar, great fisherman, chef and all round great guy. Slicing up some sashimi for the hungry skiers.

Is there a bus from nozawa to the snow monkeys? This seems like a great activity post boarding one day.
