Trading Sunshine for Snow in Nozawa

by Mark on January 9, 2011

Base of Nozawa Village looking at Myoko

Different scene here today in Nozawa with clouds covering the Village early
It is pretty cold with – 4 degrees showing on the mercury at the front door here in the Village
Heavy snow is forecast for later on today and it certainly has that feeling

Yesterday was the perfect start to the day with sunny skies and lots of snow.
A few people were complaining it was getting a bit icy later in the afternoon.
Think we have been spoilt by the last few days of epic powder.
Locals used the break in the snow to get some of the snow of the roofs before the next big dump

Was a busier day on the slopes yesterday but not as bad as thought
There was a long line at the end of the day for the Skyline connector lift, with everyone wanting the fast track down Skyline

Great festival in town last night with some amazing drumming and the sake was flowing
More powder days on the menu ahead

Snow Walls come tumbling down above Mitsubachi Maya
