Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 21 December 2015

More snow to come at Nozawa Onsen

Base at top:  40 cm

Temp at Top: 0 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira:  45 cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm       

Weather: Cloudy

Day two on the slopes was fantastic. Lots of people were out riding under the beautiful blue skies from first lift until the end of the day. It’s bittersweet when there’s a day like that; it’s great weather for riding but I think we’re all hoping for more snow.

Today, There will be some light snow throughout. We’re looking at around 8cm in the afternoon and night, and then a few days down the track we’ll be getting a massive dump for Christmas! A hefty system looks like it’ll be forming on Friday night and will be leaving its mark on Saturday, with an expected dump of 33cm on the Saturday alone. Lucky us! Temperatures are going to be getting very cold over Christmas, down to -14 at the top.

For the time being, there are a number of runs open, some with better coverage than others. A few bits of grass and plants are exposed in parts so keep an eye out for them.

Stay safe out there and enjoy the mild conditions before it gets freezing!

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 19 December 2015

The Grand Opening.

The lifts here at Nozawa Onsen will be opening today! Thanks to a generous snow fall overnight on Thursday and a nice fresh coating of 15cm in the early hours of this morning, the snow depth now sits at 40cm at the top. Yamabiko lift will be open and the runs that stem from there will be open. It’s still snowing quite heavily and looks like visibility won’t be perfect so keep your eyes up.

We’re expecting another 11cm throughout the day and some clearer conditions this afternoon, so get out there if you can for the first runs of the season. Everyone here is over the moon that we can open our lifts and we’re excited to see everyone out there enjoying themselves.

Gondola Cafe will be open and is a great cosy place to stay warm when you aren’t on the slopes. The cafe is located opposite Nagasaka Gondola in the Mt Dock Shop.

Stay safe out there and start tearing up the slopes!Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 19 December 2015
