Nozawa Onsen Spring Snow Report, 19th of April 2019
It was a lengthy bout but spring has finally wrestled control from winter. The first half of April blessed us with much snow but it seems as though true spring is finally here. Out come the farmers and bears (you might need to check out our Instagram/Facebook pages if you haven’t seen that photo). Spring doesn’t mean we’re done though. There’s still a very respectable base of 260cm at the Yamabiko area.
What is the top of the mountain looking like, according to official reports?
At 7:01 am;
Temp at the top; 6C
New snow since close; 0cm
Base at the top; 260cm
The resort will stay open until the 5th of May. This will mark, not only the end of the 2018/19 ski season but also this year’s extra special Golden Week. The 2019 edition of Golden Week is the first with a new Emperor and will usher in a new era and a few extra public holidays for Japanese people. What this all means is that guests to Nozawa during this time will find a vibrant, festive vibe to go with some great late spring skiing. There’s still some availability so get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to come up.
