What a perfect day in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on February 3, 2012

Hard to improve on a day like this one. Heading up at Karasawa to a perfect day

Base up top: 460 cm                  Temperature; -12 Degrees

Base at bottom; 315 cm

New Snow: 75cm

The snow started dumping around sunset last night and within about 3 hours we had accumulated over 30cm. It was heavy and beautiful to watch as everything just got completely covered in the white powder.

It kept going throughout the night and up top we had a huge 75cm fall at Uenotaira. We had only been expecting 20cm max!

This morning the sun has come out and it is a perfect blue bird day in Nozawa. The sun is most welcome and will hopefully help with the huge recovery effort in clearing the snow from the Village today.

On the slopes this is a day most people wait their whole lives for! A massive 460cm record level base, over 60cm of fresh powder, the sun is shining and the slopes are empty. If you are here enjoy it, if not get on a plane, train or bicycle and get up here!

Everyone is running up for first tracks this morning and Hachiman did not dissapoint
