Absolutely knee deep in powder
What a magic day we had yesterday here in Nozawa Onsen, with that 46cm of fresh powder, absolutely knee deep in the morning and it kept snowing until around midday. All over the mountain people where plowing through the snow and lots of shovelling in the village. Last night the building of the Shrine continued into the night ready for tonight main event. We woke up to a spectacular clear blue bird sky today, with an amazing pink and purple sunrise. We should see snow begin to fall again on Tuesday evening and then continue into Wednesday.
Fire festival is happening tonight, check out the specific post for all the time info.
Have a great day up there, stay safe and we’ll see you on the mountain.
