The sun is out in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on February 4, 2016

Base at top: 165 cm
Temp at Top; -7 Degrees
Base at Uenotaira 135 cm
New Snow since close: 0 cm
Weather: fairly clear skies, mild winds

There are still some good stashes to be found!

Nozawa showed us its magic yesterday with some fresh snow on the ground and the trees all glistening in a layer of white snow. It was a beautiful day up there. Our base is creeping up slowly, currently reading 165cm at the top.

With some fresh snow around the resort from the last few days, today is going to be a cracker of a day up on the mountain. The pistes should be smooth and fast, with the snowpack holding well thanks to the low temperatures. We should see temperatures at around the -7°C mark today; fairly crisp but with little winds and the sun out it should be beautiful.

Temperatures will be falling to around -12°C over the weekend as more snow comes on its way. We should be seeing light snow beginning to fall tonight, continuing through to the weekend and becoming heavy throughout Saturday.

Most courses are planned to be open, the following are not currently open:

Challenge 39 °
Grand Prix
Kandahar East
Kandahar West
