Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 28 December 2015

Base at top: 70 cm
Temp at Top; -6 Degrees
Base at Uenotaira 50 cm
New Snow since close: 20 cm
Weather; Sunny!

The snow didn’t stop falling yesterday; we received a welcome dump of snow covering all the rooves and trees, and most importantly on the runs. The temperatures were cold and the visibility wasn’t great, but the on piste conditions were fantastic. The snow stopped in the late evening and temperatures stayed cold both up top and in the village so the snow is still nice and soft.

Today’s looking like it’ll be a beautiful morning with some clouds forming in the late afternoon. Snow should start falling soon after and temperatures will fall once again as the system starts to take shape over Nozawa Onsen.

Heavy snow is on its way and the powder days are upon us with more snow to come and the base getting deeper. A nice 30cm is expected over the next 24 hours. The mountain is quite busy at the moment with Japanese schools on holidays, so let’s share the runs and try to avoid any accidents! Safe riding!

Exciting news for Nozawa Onsen

Start saying goodbye to the trees and shrubs, they’ll soon be covered in snow!

It’s cold outside and even colder up the top. The forecast has blessed us with an even better prediction than yesterday; a solid 43cm for tomorrow which is just what we need! Unfortunately there’s no snow in the village just yet but we’re expecting some tonight. The top of the resort will be getting a nice dusting over the course of today.

The photo featured here is of one of Nowawa’s most famous Onsen, a traditional experience and a great way to prepare your muscles for the weekend when our lifts will hopefully be open.

Looking outside we can see some thick clouds covering the higher sections of Nozawa Onsen. They’re looking quite heavy and ready to unload some snow. Whether they do or not is out of our control, but there’s no harm in hoping. Any moment now!

We will also be active on instagram this season, so send any of your best photos or use the hashtag ‪#‎nozawaholidays‬ and we might feature them on https://www.instagram.com/nozawaholidays/

Tonight is the night!

Nozawa Onsen is expecting the good stuff to start falling tonight. A few centimeters to begin with and it won’t be stopping until Thursday. Thursday is looking like the big day with plenty of snow dumping throughout the whole day. Some more again is predicted for the weekend. We are hoping to open our lifts on Friday. Everyone here is tapping their fingers in anticipation and the snow angels seem to be on our side. It looks like it’ll be a cold day on Thursday with a maximum of negative seven degrees, so stay warm!!

Neobar opened last night, which was a huge success. Guests, staff, and locals all enjoyed themselves and got to know each other, and the DJ kept everyone entertained with some smooth music.

Here’s hoping we wake up to snow piling up tomorrow morning!
