After a nice dump earlier this week there’s been a couple of quite warm days in Nozawa with no snow to speak of. But as the end game looms here for the season there’s more snow forecast. Today temperatures are in the plus and climbed up to 3 degrees on the mountain this morning. Probably best to head up early, get a few runs in and take it easy in the afternoon. There are many great restaurants on the mountain where you can enjoy your lunch outside in the sun. There is a still a very good base and the snow varies between corn, groomed and a bit slushy. It will be still good fun to ride and it looks like the sun is just breaking through the clouds right now.

Great conditions yesterday. In the morning there were plenty of fresh powder lines on offer. Got a bit slushy in the afternoon, but over all a fantastic day. Not a single cloud in the sky all day long and again a stunning sunset in the evening.

As we said after the warm spring conditions from today it looks like temperatures will drop overnight and snow will start coming in tomorrow morning. Heavy snow on the forecast Saturday afternoon. Have a great weekend in Nozawa Onsen.

Here’s a great Nozawa Onsen ski video from this week. Enjoy!
