Nozawa Snow Report 29 January 2016: Nozawa is getting dumped on today!

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 27 December 2015: Heavy snowfalls – now that’s more like the Nozawa we know!

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 27 December 2015

Base at top:  70 cm

Temp at top: -9 Degrees

Base at Uenotaira:  50 cm

New snow since close: 20 cm       

Weather: Sun creeping through the clouds

A beautiful day of blue skies yesterday left us feeling bittersweet. It was awesome to see the sun but we were all hoping for more snow.  Luckily, it’s been snowing overnight and we woke up to 15cm of fresh up the top and nearly 15 in the village too. Since lifts opening this morning we’ve already received another 5cm. The snow doesn’t look like it’ll be stopping any time soon either. the snow should become lighter in the afternoon but we’ll still be receiving some more in the afternoon.

Tomorrow looks like it’ll be a beautiful up on the slopes, with clear skies for the morning before clouding over in the late afternoon and dumping 16 cm overnight. We’re in for a good week to come and a good start to the new year if this weather system keeps progressing over the next couple of days.

Now that the snow is starting to build up, the tree runs are becoming more and more and more tempting. Make the right decisions and keep yourself safe on the mountain!

The Snow is Piling Up.

After some patchy snowfalls yesterday morning, we were rewarded with a solid dump in the afternoon and through the night. The snow is still falling and our excitement is rising; although unfortunately the lifts will not be opening today. We received 20 centimetres up the top overnight which brings the base at the top up to 25 centimetres. we’re expecting some more overnight and tomorrow, so hopefully tomorrow is opening day.

Around town, everybody’s been getting ready. The rental shop has been busy, boards and skis are being waxed and prepared, snowmen have started popping up, windscreen wipers have been raised and the ski patrol have been busy preparing the mountain.

Gondola Cafe will be opening today, so stop by for your coffee fix and say hi to the team up there.

Here’s to more snow at Nozawa Onsen!

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!
