Stealth Dump hits Nozawa

The Onsens in Nozawa look even prettier with a coat of Icing by Mark Jobson

New Snow; 25cm

Base at top ; 290cm

Feels like it has been a little while now since I have said it but overnight we have come close again to the Magic Foot.
The official is saying we have had 25cm and my car is showing at least that.
Still snowing lightly outside at the moment and forecast to continue lightly throughout the day.
The hungry powder hounds were all up early and hitting the slopes.

Should be an awesome day with not much of a crowd as yet before the National Holiday tomorrow.
Yesterday was not a bad day up top with varying visibility but the snow was nice under foot.
The outlook is for some sunshine tomorrow and then the dump on Saturday so looking like a great long weekend to be in Nozawa.

Will be quite a few events on up here including the Jazz Festival at Arena on the evening of the 12th and the Long Rail Challenge on Sunday the 13th from 9am. With the winner taking home a 30kg bag of rice.That’s Food for thought!
We are pretty much fully booked for this weekend but March is still looking good and with all the snow we have had so far the base should hold nicely through March then into some good spring conditions ahead.
Jetstar has a sale on 2 for 1 to Japan for April so a good chance to enjoy Nozawa and even check out teh Cherry Blossoms.
