April snow for Nozawa Onsen
Base at top: 400 cm
Temp at Top: -3 Degrees
Base at Uenotaira station: 305 cm
New snow since close: 10cm
Weather: Bluebird up top!
This is not an April Fools joke we have had 10cm of fresh snow up top on the mountain this morning! It stared to snow up top yesterday afternoon and continued thru the night. Too warm for snow in the village as to be expected at this time of the year but up top is looking like a beautiful Bluebird day.
The base had dropped down to 390cm but this has topped it back up to the 400cm mark.
