The sun is shining brightly over Nozawa this morning. After 15 odd centimetres of snow yesterday, the pistes should be groomed to perfection. We’re glad to have seen some snow falling yesterday to make up for what we didn’t get on Saturday. Looking at the webcams now, it looks like it’ll be a beautiful day up on the slopes; clear skies in every direction, though the forecast is predicting snow showers during the day… A nice dusting of snow could be heading our way.
Westerly to North-Westerly winds will be increasing overnight before reaching near gales on Tuesday afternoon through till Wednesday. There’s a decent lot of snow forecast to fall throughout that time so hopefully the wind doesn’t blow it off the mountain.
Looking further into the forecast, it’s looking like there’ll be a few warmer days over the weekend with some possible rain hitting us. We’re going to sit tight and hope that things change in our favour.
On a more positive note, challenge 39° has opened so that should be a bit of fun; the steepest run in Nozawa!
