Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in Nozawa and was some fun spring skiing up at Yamabiko. Everyone was grabbing some of the new model skis and boards and going for a slide. Was actually pretty busy up there after the empty slopes of the week days.
Check out the forecast from tonight into tomorrow! Looks like we may have a freak spring dump on the cards. With temps dropping to -8 degrees and the freezing level down to 500m. Hard to imagine after all the warm days we have had lately.
Even in a good season it is pretty rare to see snow fall after the first week of April so lets wait and see what Mother Nature delivers but a few of the local crew are getting a bit excited. Any new snow would be a blessing as the base is decreasing daily and looks like temps will shoot up soon after. So get your best snow dance on one more time…
