Ski and Snowboard testing in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on April 13, 2012

Test next years ski and snowboard models this weekend in Nozawa Onsen.

Base up top: 330 cm        Temperature: 5 Degrees

Base at bottom: 135 cm

New Snow: 0 cm               Weather: Sunny

A fantastic day on the mountain today. The sun was out all morning. Great fun to ski on the slushy slopes or between the trees right up top. Good news too for park lovers. The Uneotaira chair lift is operating today and will stay open over the weekend. This means easy and good access to the Snow Park and Halfpipe again.

Still plenty of snow and action in Nozawa Onsen with the Ski-cross competition taking place this weekend. Come up and watch the spectacular races on the Paradise run tomorrow and on Sunday.
It is also a good time to think about what ski or snowboard you would like to ride next year. Next years ski and snowboard models from various brands can be tested all weekend long for free up at Yamabiko.

The weather closed in a bit now. Looks like we will get some snow tonight and tomorrow. So could well be that I will test a powder ski tomorrow. Sunday is nice and sunny again.

Getting organised. Preparations for the ski cross taking place up at Paradise tomorrow and on Sunday.
