Nozawa Onsen Snow Report 18th February 2019
There’s plenty of sunshine on the menu, ladies and gents. The cloud lingers but there’s plenty of blue sky to be seen. If you’re lucky, there’s bound to be a few pockets of powder left over from yesterday. It doesn’t look like we’ll see a lot of snow in the immediate future but you never know. So often, when they predict a little we get heaps and when they predict none we get some. We’ll just have to wait and see, enjoying the sunshine as we go.
The slightly warmer temperatures are always a bit more kid-friendly, of course. So too is the relative warmth great for enjoying a beer between runs. It’s almost got us looking forward to spring skiing later in the season. Almost.
What’s the official word from the top of the mountain?
Temp at the top; -2C
New snow since close; 0cm
Base at the top; 315 cm
Weather; a bit of cloud with clear skies to come as the day goes on.
Don’t forget to hit the sunscreen before you head out!
For those coming to Nozawa Onsen to ski or simply for those who want to daydream, don’t forget you can always check out the live cams page. The ample snow and blue skies today will make for some glorious viewing. So too will the snow when it returns.
Stay safe and see you on the mountain!
