Spring is upon us

Welcome to Nozawa Onsen snow report, with Spring nearly upon us and a base of 330cm we have great conditions for touring, if you have never tried touring it’s a great time to experience it here in Nozawa.

Today we should have partly cloudy conditions with mild temperatures, the next 2 days should be similar but with a chance of light snow. The long range forecast still has a solid dumping of snow at the beginning of next week but that forecast has been swing wildly from moderate snow to very heavy snow, so we will have to wait a see what mother nature can deliver. Maybe it’s time to do that snow dance again.
