Warmer day on the cards in Nozawa

by Mark on February 6, 2012

This is what a 4 meter base looks like in Nozawa Onsen. The Otagiris from Bun Bun standing tall!

Base up top: 400 cm                  Temperature; -5 Degrees

Base at bottom; 290 cm

New Snow: 0 cm

Experiencing a bit of a spike on the thermometer in Nozawa this morning. Currently 5 degrees at the front door and expected to stay warmish throughout today.

The weather is coming in from the south and bringing a warm current from Okinawa with it. The weatherman is telling us to expect a bit of rain at the Village level later today but should be snow up higher with the freezing level well above sea level where it has been sitting for the past few weeks.

It is set to drop again from tomorrow night though with low temps and snow on the forecast. Yesterday was a nice day on the slopes with clear skies and fun conditions. Should be similar today. This change in temps will most likely heighten avalanche danger so take care if venturing away from the groomed runs.

Next weekend we have the Snowsplash on Saturday night with limited tickets available and a cool line up it should be a good night. On Friday night will be running a soba making and eating night at one of our neighbours places for anyone keen to see this well kept art and taste the delights!

The Art of Soba Making alive and well in Nozawa Onsen. Matusmura san rolling out some goodness!
