White Out in Nozawa

by Mark on January 6, 2011

Villa Nozawa taking cover

New Snow – 50cm
Base at Yamabiko – 160cm

The Snow has arrived in Nozawa Onsen with 30cm plus settling on the ground in the Village.
Should be more up top.

The shot above is of the car park and Hiace at Villa Nozawa a familiar sight for some. This was early this morning and we have probably had a further 30cm since then has been non stop

It started to snow lightly at about 11pm last night and was not sure it was going to hit
But sure enough this morning we were woken with the sound of snow sliding off the roof

This dump will hopefully go a long way to getting the lower runs having a healthy cover and some of the brush up the top getting covered up.

Yesterday was still a nice day but people were looking for some more and prayers have been answered
Still snowing heavily outside and forecast to continue with moderate snow throughout today

Getting lighter tomorrow then a sunshine day forecast for Saturday which should make it a big day on the mountain
