More Nozawa Snow To Come
Wednesday 21st of March 2018
Temp at Top: -1℃
Base at top: 260cm
Base at Uenotaira station: 180cm
New snow since close: 0cm
Everybody on the mountain had their heads in the clouds yesterday after the fog rolled in and hung around for a while. The clouds and cold temps kept everything nice and fresh on piste. Things are a little clearer here this morning than they were yesterday.
The good news is that there’s a little more snow forecast up top for today. In fact, the low temperatures mean a few centimetres of fresh snow is set to fall over each of the next three days. The sun should return some time Saturday, followed by a bright, shiny Sunday on the mountain and in the village.
If you’re looking to either warm up or chill out here in Nozawa, be sure to drop in and see the lovely staff, Maiko san and Asako san, at Mt Dock Gondola Cafe, just below the main Nagasaka Gondola. Some people say it’s the best coffee in Nozawa Onsen.You might have to try it for yourself to find out. The toasties and brownies are delicious too. If you have been before, why not jump on TripAdvisor and give them a bit of a plug… TripAdvisor; Mt Dock Gondola Cafe, Nozawa Onsen
Nozawa Spring Continues…
You might be forgiven for thinking that the season is finished but here in Nozawa Onsen, that’s not the case. A few centimetres of snow yesterday and a few more to come on each of the next three days is a timely reminder that spring skiing continues right through April.
