Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 25 March 2017

Cracking start to the weekend! With about 15 cm of fresh snow and currently sitting at -7 up top this morning, it certainly doesnt feel like spring?? Base up at Yamabiko is now measuring a whopping 430cm with lots of fresh tracks yet to be had. Today we can expect the mountian to be a little bit more busier than the last few days as the weekend tourists would have been arriving last night and this morning.

March Madness Nozawa Onsen

March Madness Nozawa Onsen

Should have been here yesterday in Nozawa! 24th of March 2017

Wow yesterday was one for the books the snow just kept coming and temps were very cold. Check out this footage from Buna yesterday afternoon with blizzard like conditions. Many of the seasonal staff and locals were saying it was like mid winter in January. We ended up with around 40cm for the day and the base is sitting at a season high of 430cm this morning. The Good news is today should be just as good with a lot of snow falling as lifts closed yesterday and still falling lightly now in the village and the sun starting to poke its head out. Stay safe and enjoy the March powder in Nozawa #marchmagicnozawa

Here is a link to some more info on how good March can be in Nozawa Onsen

410cm hot today thats the peak base for the seats so far in Nozawa this year and it i.e. end of March!

Hard to believe it is nearly the end of March and we have the Peak Base for Nozawa Onsen for 2017 season. At 410cm it is double what may resorts around the world experience even in peak season! The snow kids are not finished with us yet either and looks like we are in for another big dump at least for up the top from Sunday night with another 20cm expected to fall across the resort!

Temp at Top: -5 Degrees

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 23 March 2017

A fresh start to the day this morning with low temperatures keeping yesterdays snow in great condition. The mountain has reported a fresh 5cm has fallen throughout the evening topping up our already incredible 405cm base.

With a slight dusting of snow, there could be some fresh tracks to be had first thing this morning for all them early birds. But we can expect the mountain to still be quiet with not so many tourists, giving us more opportunity to find new tracks throughout the afternoon.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 23 March 2017

Temperature will stay steady during the day and dropping down again as the evening rolls in. We are expecting another snowfall tonight with freezing levels dropping back down to town levels.

Could be another white morning wake up call tomorrow as winter isn’t over yet for Nozawa Onsen.

It could be a cold next few days with snow in the forecast again for Sunday evening.

Be sure to check out our page each day for all latest reports..

March Magic Nozawa Onsen

Just a little clip and a touch of winter from the top of Nozawa yesterday!

Was an amazing day yesterday, the snow kept falling thick and fast. We ended up with over 30cm across the top of the resort and were still getting fresh tracks at 4pm when the lifts closed! Not bad for the later part of March. The base also hit 405cm about the peak for the season! The sun is out now so this morning should be pretty special up top. Get up there for first tracks or sleep in and enjoy some sunshine before the next snow fall expected tonight.#marchmagicnozawa

It is still not too late for this season by any means. We have over 400cm base and more on the way

Pow Pow Pow!!!

Waking up full of excitement this morning after yesterdays rain. Always nice to look out the window in the morning with everything covered in snow. The Mountain has measured a fresh 15cm of new snow up top early this morning.Temperatures have dropped well below zero last night and still sitting about -6 up top of the mountain today with the snow just dumping down.

Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 22 March 2017

Freezing level is between 600 to 800 meters with not much sign of the snow stopping. Should be a good day for all those powder-hounds out there in search of fresh tracks. Be careful though as this fresh snow might be sitting on top of some cruddy areas after Mondays really warm day and yesterdays rainy day.

We have snow in the forecast for all of today right through until Friday afternoon so its looking like a good couple of powder days. Could be a great chance to head on down to Nozawa Central Rental shop to try out their Powder range before the sun comes back…

Have fun and stay safe…….
