Base up top: 330 cm Temp Top; +12 Degrees
New Snow since close: 5 cm
It is very warm this morning with a strong spring sun making itself known and a light fog hovering within the mountain valleys. Surprisingly 5cm of fresh snow was recorded at Yamabiko last night, very strange considering the exceptionally high freezing level. Today the snow will be slushy, grading to sticky by the afternoon but the riding will be fun on the upper piste areas. With yesterdays rain washing the atmosphere free of pollution the could be a few nice views from up top.
Tomorrow and Monday rain is forecast so conditions won’t exactly be the best. But by Tuesday morning the freezing level is set to drop bringing snow and a winter vibe back to Nozawa Onsen. Cold and snowy conditions above around 1000m will persist through the middle of next week.
