Nozawa Onsen Spring Snow Report, 3rd of April 2019
Who saw this coming in April? Anyone with their hand up is a liar! April kicked off with 20cm followed by another 20cm…
Then we were blessed with another 35 centimetres up top overnight. But it feels like we got that down in the village. Either way, it’s 35 official centimetres and counting. It continues to snow at 10am as it has been all morning and, presumably, all night. The base at the top of the mountain is now way up over three metres at 340cm and the snowfall continues. This is looking great for the duration of the season. Right up until the end of Golden Week, during the beginning of May, the top of Mount Kenashi looks the place to be!
What’s the official word from the top of the mountain this morning?
At 10:08 am;
Temp at the top; -6C
New snow since close; 35cm
New snow since 8am; 10cm
Base at the top; 340cm
Ladies and gents, with this much Nozawa Onsen spring snow around, it’s a good time to consider getting over here for Easter. Our season continues for some time yet. It’s not too late. Check out the post below.
