Shiga Kogen Nozawa Onsen
A Magic Foot in Magic March
Someone forgot to tell the snow gods it is late March yesterday and they kept delivering all day. Nozawa received a total of 37cm from this dump so more than the Magic Foot. It was solid winter cold on the slopes and the powder was as good as it gets with plenty of fresh tracks. This morning will be epic too as the snow eased overnight and the skies are clearing with lots of stashes of fresh snow about.
The stats for the slopes today in Nozawa
Temperature up top: – 7 degrees�New snow since close: 5 cm – Yesterdays Total was 32cm!
Base at top: 215 cm
Snow conditions: Fresh snow
Weather: Skies clearing for a bluebird ahead
Looking ahead it is going to warm up over the next few days with buckets of sunshine. A northerly change expected on Saturday should bring cold temps again and decent snow fall for the top. The season is not over yet. Never know you may get a chance to dig your car out like we had to yesterday!
