Nozawa Onsen Snowmaking
Snow Guns are poised and ready in Nozawa
Snow expected for the top in Nozawa from tonight with around 15cm forecast tonight and into tomorrow. Not a bad sign and the better news is temps should remain pretty chilly averaging around -3 degrees for a few days. This is the first year in the Nozawa Onsen Ski Resorts over 100 Year history that they will be employing the aid of Manmade snow on the slopes. These cold temps should help to establish a base a little earlier using the technology of the snow guns.
They are tactfully positioned along the Uenotaira and Yamabiko slopes. Think most that have been to Nozawa know that beautiful tree in the photo at the top of Paradise slope. The resort is planning to open on December 12th so let’s hope the combination of cool temps, manmade and natural snow will get us there. Not a lot of snow expected in the longer range at this stage but as you know things can change in Nozawa very fast and we can get huge dumps in a short period of time.
Start your engines, the count down to the season is on. We look forward to seeing you so jump on the site to book https://www.nozawaholidays.com
