Snow filled January Nozawa
It’s a ‘half a meter Monday’ with a massive 60cm or “Two Magic Feet” of fresh snow falling overnight up top at Yamabiko! Probably only one foot in the village but what a fantastic dump. It’s an awesome top up after the previous two gorgeously sunny days gave us Spring skiing conditions, with the layers shed.
The snow will continue to fall throughout the day with another 30cm of fresh snow expected to fall by the end of the day! It’s not too late to book your Nozawa Onsen holiday and make the most of the epic snow. Check the link for availability.
