Nozawa Snow Report: Getting buried in a big dump overnight

in Jan 26, 2012

Snow path in Nozawa Onsen


We are getting absolutely buried in new snow in Nozawa Onsen today. Official reports are showing up to 65cm up top we are struggling to shovel 70cm in the driveway just to get all the eager powder hounds out the front door and up the slopes!

It started on my way to the onsen last night around midnight and by the time I had come out there was 10cm on the ground. I gathered a further 5cm on my head on the way home! It just continued dumping all night and is still heavy now with no sign of stopping! Nice light fluffy snow with first tracks almost every run. The groomers are back out on the slopes this morning to try and make some groomed runs for the non initiated!

Anyway better go and get in some valuable research up the mountain for you all! Stay safe and have an awesome day it is going to be deep powder. May need more than the snorkel, maybe pack a periscope today!
