Spring conditions today in Nozawa

The Yuzawa Shrine in Nozawa Onsen. Apart from skiing there is a lot to explore around town.

Base at bottom; 210 cm

New Snow: 0 cm               Weather: Blue sky

Looks like we are in for a warm spring day here in Nozawa. Temperatures are in the plus and climbed up to 3 degrees on the mountain this morning. Probably best to head up early, get a few runs in and take it easy in the afternoon. There are many great restaurants on the mountain where you can enjoy your lunch outside in the sun. The slushy spring conditions will be still good fun to ride and it looks like the sun is just breaking through the clouds right now.

Great conditions yesterday. In the morning there were plenty of fresh powder lines on offer. Got a bit slushy in the afternoon, but over all a fantastic day. Not a single cloud in the sky all day long and again a stunning sunset in the evening.

After the warm spring conditions from today it looks like temperatures will drop overnight and snow will start coming in tomorrow morning. Heavy snow on the forecast Saturday afternoon. Have a great weekend in Nozawa Onsen.

Another perfect sunset at Nozawa Onsen. Looking south-west towards Madarao. Photo taken by Kieran Kelly. cheers Kieran
