Unbelievable March Conditions

While excitement builds for Afghanistan v England tomorrow or Adelaide v Geelong tonight one might also note that it’s still coming down here in Nozawa Onsen. Looking out the window this morning will incite no shortage of excitement for powder enthusiast with persistent moderate snow accumulating 10cm of fresh since last lifts yesterday. The word of the day today will be ‘epic’.

Nozawa Snow Report 12 March 2015 (continued)

Yesterday we saw some superb conditions, certainly the best in recent memory, probably since mid February at least. Deep but not bottomless powder snow blanketed the resort once more creating a blank canvas to work upon. The snow was in excellent conditions all day with cold temperatures and light to moderate winds. Crowd levels were incredibly low, as to be expected in March.

Hiking for lines.

We should expect light to moderate snow continue all today becoming isolated overnight. A brief spike in temperature tomorrow to 1000m will precede another front for tomorrow night, which has received a decent overnight upgrade. Light falls will then continue into Saturday. Our first clear day for the week is predicted for Sunday.
