Snovember has started in Nozawa!
The first snow falls for Japan have been recorded around the country and yesterday was our turn with the first lovely blanket of white gracing Mt Kenashi.
Just a dusting but always looks pretty and an encouraging sign that Winter is on its way!Has been getting cold in town the last few days and the Fire is on.
Good news is the mid range forecast is now showing a cold front and some decent snowfalls forecast for late next week. Will it be enough to open the resort on the 23rd of November?
It can change a lot between now and then but always nice to see those snow figures on the charts.
Winter is coming! We never really know what we are going to get snow wise for the season. Long range forecasts are just that forecasts, but here is a guide to what we normally get month by month in Nozawa each year to give you an idea ; https://www.nozawaholidays.com/snow-conditions/
