Sun before Snow Nozawa
A little more sun before the Snow.
Yesterday was a perfect day up in the slopes with the fresh snow from the day before and beautiful sunshine all day. Lots of families about having a great day and plenty of smiles rolling down the hill. The snow was nice and fast up top all day but did get sticky down lower as the day warmed up and the sun hit the snow. Here is a little video from up at Yamabiko yesterday just after lunch time.
Today will be pretty stable temps all day sitting at just below freezing point up top and at 4 degrees down in the Village. Clear skies at the moment should give way to snow up top later today.
