Another Winter’s Day in Nozawa Onsen

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 9 February 2014 (PM update): Another Winter's Day in Nozawa Onsen

Remember to ski and board carefully guys. Otherwise you many end up eating sushi in a Japanese hospital for some time. We all wish you a speedy recovery Judita and everyone here in Nozawa is thinking of you.

Base up top: 280 cm    Temp Top; -7 Degrees

Base at bottom; 155 cm

New Snow since close: 10 cm

Weather; Overcast

At the moment it is overcast in Nozawa Onsen, with occasional patches of blue sky. Currently there is no snow falling, however we do expect some light flurries throughout the day. Skiing will be good throughout with light dry powder up top and fast, smooth groomers from top to bottom. Conditions remain dangerous with hidden death cookies in the backcountry, especially on south facing walls. Be extra vigilant in the run outs.

Yesterday was pretty nice. A standard winters day in Nozawa really. Waist deep powder amongst the trees. Fast groomers, cold, snowing and not that much blue sky.  Perfect conditions for the powders hounds descending on the resort.

According to the predictions snow is set to continue today and tomorrow before easing into Thursday with some clear days following possible. Isolated snow showers and possible during this time period.

There is a fundraiser for Judita (see photo above) tomorrow night who was recently badly injured in a skiing accident at Nozawa. You may or may not have seen these guys around town lately but you should certainly come and meet them. They came across our lovely Judita when she had her accident and were so impressed by her strength and positive attitude as they helped her on the slopes, that they’re starting a fund raiser for her this Monday night at Shot Bar Heaven. Consider this the ‘Shave for Judita’! Jackson’s curly locks are going at at least 1000 yen a snip and all proceeds go to Judita’s recovery. Come and help these boys put a smile back on her face
