Karasawa Slopes December 17th 2011 Nozawa Magic big difference in 3 days

The good times just keep rolling here in Nozawa Onsen. After a brief break in the snow last night with clear skies and lots of stars we awoke this morning to snow falling consistently again in the Village.

The resort is reporting 5cm of fresh snow has fallen up top this morning and with temps at – 6 degrees conditions should be terrific. A lot more of the resort is open this morning and can now ski top to bottom on the Hikage side of the resort down the Beginner Rinkan course or Forest Trail  and Challenger slopes. So can cruise down for about an 8 km run top to bottom

Today is Kids ski free day so there is sure to be lots of little speedsters flying by enjoying their first ski of the season.

The outlook for Nozawa is basically white with snow forecast for the rest of the day and then heavy snow due tomorrow night. We should now hopefully be set for the season. The two photos in this post show how quicky things can change in Nozawa Onsen, with the flick of a switch in just a 3 day period the ski season is in full swing.
