After a fairly warm spell yesterday where temperatures reached 3° Celsius, We’re back to what we like to see. The mercury has dropped down to -8 ° Celsius at the top. We’re expecting some snow today and it should be falling across almost the whole mountain. The freezing level is sitting just above the village altitude though this will drop across the day and we should see close to 10cm up the top and slightly less down in the village. Enough to refresh the pistes and keep us sliding fast on the slopes.
Monday should see winds easing with skies still overcast. Tuesday’s looking like winds will increase as a moderate system forms across Nozawa. The rest of the week is looking fairly good with temperatures staying well below zero at high elevation and snow forecast for a couple of days throughout the week.
