Weather; Still snowing heavy!
Crazy night on the snow front in Nozawa, with almost a whole Meter of snow falling across the resort. Seems like a while since we have seen this big a dump as last season we did not get a lot of these huge falls.
This system looks set to be a bit of a record for this time of year in a few parts of Japan and Nozawa is no exception.
The base has over doubled overnight to up to 165cm and still going strong! This should set us up for the season now with more big falls forecast over the next few days and very cold temps.
Roads are pretty grid locked so take care anyone moving about or coming up
The resort should open some more runs today as a result of the dump and it will definitely good all the way to the bottom on the snow front if they can groom the runs in time. Better pack the snorkel and maybe even a scuba tank for this one it is going to be deep!
