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.

Nozawa Snow Report 31 December 2013

Five centimetres of fresh has been recorded overnight in Nozawa Onsen. We currently have overcast conditions above the village and temperatures are cool at the summit, warmer down low.

Best areas of the resort will be the upper half if your hunting some fresh or throughout all groomers if your just cruising. If the village last night was any indication then the slopes will be busy today so pick your skiing areas carefully. New Year and the fire festival are the two busiest times in Nozawa Onsen.

Yesterday was a nice day with the clear weather although the off piste snow suffered down low with the warm conditions, becoming heavy. That being said, the snow remained in top notch condition in the Yamabiko area.

We still expect a moderate dump of snow starting early tomorrow morning and continuing over the next few days. Heaviest falls will occur tomorrow, but the best skiing will be had Thursday with colder temps and lighter winds.
