Temp at Top: 11 Degrees
Base at Uenotaira station: 200 cm
New snow since close: 0cm
Weather: Sunny start with clouds washing thru
Another sunny start to the day here but some cloud cover coming across the valley now. Looks like we are in for a change later this afternoon with strong southerly winds and rain expected tonight. Best to get up there early this morning and enjoy the hard pack and groomed pistes before they soften up in the afternoon.
Yesterday was a true spring day and the warmest we have felt in more than 5 months in Nozawa. We hit about 20 degrees in the village and even put the board shorts on for the first time! Felt pretty good just quietly.
Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 17 April 2017 – The Forecast
Looking ahead temps are set to fall again from tomorrow and Wednesday will see back to sub zero temperatures for the top of the mountain and may even see some show showers up top. Things looks like they are going to be a bit like this photo the next few days with some sunshine amongst clouds, rain and even snow. So looks like a mixed bag on the weather front. It is a long way off but unbelievably there is currently a decent snowfall expected for the top on Saturday! Will have to wait and see…
