Blue Bird Yamabiko Nozawa a few days ago by Micheal Hill

New Snow 20cm
Base at Yamabiko 240cm

The Snow Show continues in Nozawa Onsen
At around midnight last night could see the stars so thought we were in for a bluebird morning

However the snow was falling pretty heavy in town this morning and has continued.
The forecast is for light snow so will be interesting to see if it eases through the day.

Yesterday was an amazing powder day on the mountain with some big smiles and sore legs coming down in the afternoon. Crowds also started to thin out and today should see a lot less people around with the long weekend over
Enjoy the few quieter days and great snow as with the Fire Festival coming up on the 15th things are set to get pretty busy on the slopes and in town.

Preparations begin on the 13th with the villagers dragging the trees down the slopes past Hikage to begin construction of the shrine.

The sake will be flowing like the water thru the streets and well worth checking out
Anyway that is in a few days for now it is all about the snow and lots of it so enjoy some powder time

Courses open:

All except the following
Uenotaira Half Pipe
Karasawa Wave Park

Lifts operating:

Nozawa Onsen does Festivals well. Anyone for some soup?
