Nozawa Snow Report, 16 Dec: Cloudy with some wet snow falling

The Nozawa Onsen Snow Report

The Nozawa Onsen Snow report for December 16, 2012. It ended up being quite windy up on the top courses yesterday which delayed opening some of the lifts. Today the weather is a bit miserable with patches of wet snow and rain as well as fog/cloud. The resort is hoping for a bit of top up snow early this week.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report - Dec 16: ski slopes

As can be seen by the snow depths below it is a little patchy on the lower slopes. However if you come off Paradise slopes onto Rinkan you can make it to the bottom of the slopes comfortably. You can check out weather and snow conditions via our Nozawa Onsen webcams.

Approximate snow course depths:
Yamabiko 100cm
Uenotaira 100cm
Higake 60cm
Nagasaka 45cm
Karasawa 40cm

This is what it was looking like on Oyu a few days ago. A good day for an onsen in Nozawa.
