Looks like we have some big flakes falling from the sky in Nozawa Onsen this morning. With temperatures slightly less than an average mid winter day and strong gusting winds it will be a cold day up on the mountain but the rewards of rapidly accumulating powder pockets will be great. With almost a complete lack of powder hounds in the village at the moment you can be sure that tracked out areas will be few and far between.

A brief look at the forecast gives indicating towards steadily strengthening snowfalls today with high overnight accumulations predicted tonight. Light snow showers will then continue tomorrow easing overnight into Thursday. A long run of clear spring days is expected from Thursday until at least mid next week.
