Ups and Downs in Nozawa

by Mark on March 2, 2012

The Nozawa Lifties are some of the finest on the planet. Yonemochi san on the Skyline Link is a good friend and a very happy man!

Base up top: 385 cm                 Temperature; 2 Degrees

Base at bottom; 250 cm

New Snow: 0 cm                           Weather; Overcast

Not one of our finer days today in Nozawa

We have grey skies hovering over the Village this morning. Have been copping some rain down low but a few people coming down have confirmed it is snowing quite heavy up top with limited visibility.

Still pretty wet though with temps a bit too warm. They are forecast to drop throughout today so should see some snow even at Village level tonight.

Yesterday was a glorious day on the slopes with amazing views and visibility. The snow was a bit soft down low but nice up top and even some powder stashes to be found on the North facing slopes

Pretty big weekend coming up, with celebrations to commemorate 100 Years of skiing in Japan. On Saturday Night at Hikage slopes we have Fireworks, a Flare run and Taiko drums kicking off from 19:30. Should be a fun night so look forward to seeing some of you there

There has been some pretty cool snowmen getting around town this year in Nozawa Onsen
