Still plenty of snow in Nozawa Onsen. Picture taken yesterday by Michael Bateman. Cheers Michael.

Base up top: 370 cm        Temperature:  -1 Degrees

Base at bottom: 200 cm

New Snow: 17 cm               Weather: Overcast

It looked not very promising out the window yesterday morning. But the rain did not last very long before it turned into snow up top just before lunch time. By mid afternoon it was snowing heavy up at Yamabiko and even down in the village big snow flakes were falling from the sky. Fresh tracks all afternoon made up for a wet start in the day.

Great conditions today. The sun comes out every now and then with 20 cm fresh powder snow to enjoy on top. Good to see that the temperatures dropped into the Minus again.
Plenty of action on the mountain today with the Halfpipe Competition taking place up at Uenotaira. Great opportunity to look at some tricks from the Pros.

Forecast looks good. We are in for a nice blue sky tomorrow before another cold front rolls in. Temperatures are on the rise on Tuesday but not for long. Heavy snow on the radar Tuesday night.

Looks good on the weather forecast. More snow on the radar next week.
