Shaping up to be a great weekend in Nozawa

by Mark on January 23, 2016

Base at top:  140 cm

Temp at Top; -10 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira  115 cm

New Snow since close: 10 cm       

Weather; light snow


Yesterday up on the slopes was great, fresh snow on the groomers, some little pockets of powder to still be found, and some more snow to top it off. We saw moderate snow throughout the day, bringing us another 10cm. Snow is falling lightly now in the village and will continue through the day. Temperatures at the top will be hovering at around -10 degrees, with mild winds so the windchill factor isn’t too bad.

This season has been slower and lighter than most, and the forecast for a big dump tonight and tomorrow has unfortunately been downgraded, though we will still be getting a nice amount of snow. At this stage it looks like we’ll have a fresh 20cm by Sunday night. Looking further ahead, The clouds will soon be leaving us for the sun to make an appearance next week. Temperatures will be warming up a bit for a couple of days before some more snow later in the week.

Enjoy the weekend and the fresh snow!
