It’s all about the base in Nozawa
Base at top: 330 cm
Temp at Top: 10 Degrees
Base at Uenotaira station: 235 cm
New snow since close: 0cm
Weather: Warm Sunny day
Photo of Hikage slopes, which are now closed for the season but check out that base still 135cm at the bottom of Nozawa! For many resorts in the world that would be the base in peak season and in Nozawa these slopes are now closed for the season.
Up top at Yamabiko we still have 330cm so even with these warmer temps it is going to take a while to wear it down and the resort will have no problem staying open until May 7th this season for the Golden Week Hoikday.
Nice warm day down in the village and very quiet about town for a weekend. Still top to bottom skiing for beginners and advanced skiers with the forest trail and skyline all open. Buna restaurant on the Paradise slope is also open for lunch and magic sitting out the front sipping a beer and taking in the views…
