The sun is shining for another beautiful day in Nozawa

by Mark on March 29, 2016

Base at top: 145 cm

Temp at Top: 2 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira station: 70cm

New snow since close: 0 cm

Weather: blue skies and mild winds


This will be our third sunny day in a row, and while the sun can sometimes be harsh on the snowpack, The compromise is getting to riding in a t-shirt. There’s nothing like it. The temperature has only just exceeded 0°C up top today, so the snow should still be fairly nice up there for the day. Lower down on the hill the pistes may become slushy as the day progresses. The cover is still good across most of the mountain; it’s just the lower few hundred meters that have become patchy which is fairly common for this time of year.

The forecast is looking like it’ll stay fairly warm for the rest of the week with plenty of sunny days. Winds will be mild for the most part and it’s not looking like we’ll see any rain for a while which we’re thankful for. There is a possible chance of light snowfall but given the warm temperatures this may not eventuate. We’ve got our fingers crossed for some fresh snow but regardless of whether it comes or not, we’re not going to let it stop us from getting our turns in!
