First Snow of the coming Winter Season hit Japan just a few days ago!
It fell in a few parts of Northern Japan the first place being at Mt Kurodake in Daisetsu Mountain Range.
The elevation is 1984 meters above Sea Level.
It was only a sprinkle by the looks but was 6 days earlier than last year!
Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort usually plans to open on December the 1st each year depending on conditions
So with Mother Natures blessing we could be skiing in just 2 months from now!
December 2014 was heavy very early and we had a huge 3 meters of snow in just 4 days so the base was already 135cm by December 7th.
Will this year be a repeat? Time will tell…
Here is a report from 2014 when we had a huge start to the season https://www.nozawaholidays.com/news/december-remember-nozawa-onsen/
