Nozawa Onsen Snow Report: 12 April 2014 and that’s a wrap

As you’ve probably guessed by now the season is just about done here. There are still some lifts open with keen skiers enjoying the sun and spring conditions. There is some ski cross on this weekend as well as a chance to check out some demo skis and boards for the 2014/15 season. Some lifts will stay open until the end of Golden Week here (May 6) or if the snow runs out sooner. Of course it’s naturally a great time to be out in the backcountry.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 12th April 2014

The snow this season has been a bit inconsistent but there’s also been plenty of great Nozawa pow days. A big thanks to Mark and and all the crew at Nozawa Holidays for their help with the reports this season. You guys rock! Some of them were over visiting Myoko this week for a tour to Mount Huichi.

Last Nozawa Onsen Snow Report of the Season

The weather in Nozawa Onsen is unreal – almost like February at times. Hardly anyone on the mountain this morning. Almost feels like a private ski resort at times. Still great snow conditions on and off the slopes. If you know the right spots you can even still find nice powder runs. After a few snowy days and a blue sky yesterday the temperatures are on the rise a bit today. But still good fun to carve down Skyline towards the village and get a few turns in at the slushy bottom part.

Fantastic day yesterday. Fresh powder and blue sky is a mix which is hard to beat. A lot of people did not want to miss out and made their way up to Nozawa to enjoy skiing once more this season. Temperatures stayed fairly cold up top and guaranteed good snow condition all day long. Got a bit slushy at the bottom in the afternoon. But all in all could not ask for a better day.

The forecast shows a blue sky tomorrow and some rain for Wednesday. Should not affect us too much, there is still plenty of snow on the mountain. Nozawa are keeping a really big area of the resort open, in fact most of the main runs really and you can still ski from top to bottom.

Apart from that we’ve decided to close the Nozawa Onsen Snow Report out today. Not that, as you can see above, that’s any reflection of the snow quality in Nozawa.  It’s been an awesome season but the weather is only getting warmer from here by the looks of it and the skiers much less.

We’ll be updating occasionally over the off season with videos and pics from this season so if you have one you’d like to contribute please do so on our Facebook page. Otherwise see you all next season in Nozawa Onsen!
