Snow is finally falling over Nozawa

by Mark on February 7, 2016

Base at top: 165 cm

Temp at Top: -8 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira: 130 cm

New Snow since close: 10 cm       

Weather: moderate snow and moderate fog


The great piste conditions and the nice weather up on the hill made up for an unfortunate turn of events in the skies yesterday. Our predicted dump of 30cm never materialised and we were left with not a whole lot in the way of snow. As for now, well it’s been snowing moderately for a few hours and we’ve got a fresh coating of 10cm on the mountain. Snow is expected to fall through till the afternoon, though we can’t say that for certain as this storm seems to be a hard one to predict. We’re just going to enjoy what we can get. Temperatures today will be cold, at around -12 up the top, it would be wise to rug up.

With the freezing level down at 0m, we’re seeing snow blanket the whole mountain. This reading should stay below the village level for the next few days so our next lot of snowfalls will reach us down here as well. There’s another storm on its way that should be taking form on Tuesday morning with moderate snowfalls predicted. Winds will be getting stronger into the week so the windchill will be something to keep in mind when dressing yourself and your children for the slopes.
