Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 24 February 2015

Colder with possibility of snow

Base up top: 420 cm    Temp Top; -3 Degrees

Base at bottom; 250 cm

New Snow since close: 0 cm

Weather; Overcast

Things have cooled off in Nozawa Onsen slightly today. Instead of Mt Kenashi summit temperature sitting well into the positives like yesterday it has dropped to -3C. Furthermore, the precipitation we experienced yesterday looks to have cleared for now as has the dense fog that hovered over the mountain yesterday. We can expect icy conditions today on the upper mountain, slushier down low. But at least the snow will be fast.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 24 February 2015 (continued)

Yesterday was pretty bad. Light rain stuck around for most of the day and all but the most well ridden pistes were sticky and wet.

We continue to have a extremely variable forecast with huge ups and downs in the freezing level. Its very hard to trust the accuracy of the forecast beyond three days at the moment. Today we should see isolated snow showers above around 800 meters, continuing to around 700 meters into tomorrow. On Thursday another warm front is forecast with the possibility of rain. Snow is a possibility on Friday.
