Ski Week Nozawa Japan
Just a week ago in Nozawa!
This shot was one of my favourites from last Sunday here in Nozawa when we had 55cm overnight. Looking out the window and a very different scene today. It has been Spring like the last week but still nice sunny days on the slopes and with all that snow we had the pistes have been good. The pendulum is set to swing back from tomorrow night though with cold temps and snow expected. I doubt we will get back to scenes like this but will be good to welcome Winter conditions again.
The stats for the slopes today in Nozawa
Temperature up top: 3 degrees
New snow since close: 0 cm
Base at top: 200 cm
Snow conditions: Spring like
Weather: Mainly cloudy with some sun and rain forecast later
Yesterday was similar to the day before with soft but fun snow conditions. Spring slush but fast underfoot and lots of fun especially up top. A few people around for the weekend but was not too busy. Today rain is expected unfortunately but has managed to hold off so far and it looks nice on the web cams across the resort. https://nozawa-onsen.com/nozawa-webcams/
Tomorrow morning should be reasonably clear before the snow in the evening and temps back down to -10 degrees up top. The snow should continue throughout the day on Tuesday ahead of sunshine on Wednesday so looking like a decent week ahead.
