Nozawa Onsen Spring Snow Report, 2nd of March 2019
We’re certainly getting our bang for buck this Nozawa Onsen spring. The first few days of April aren’t letting us down after what was a truly Magic March. Following the 20 centimetres we awoke to on April Fools’ Day, today we see another 20 cm. Both evenings have added to what was already a healthy base up top for spring skiing. It’s now back up to 3 metres!
Most of the lower lifts and runs closed yesterday as planned. However, there’s more than enough snow around. Things are looking good to get us right through up until the 5th of May during Golden Week when the mountain finally stops for the winter.
Beyond winter, of course, the main gondola will open for about six weeks in summer for mountain biking. Make sure to check out our long-stay Green Season deal where guests can stay in Nozawa for a month cheaper than they can rent at home!
Let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves right now.
What’s the official word from the top of the mountain this morning?
At 7:15 am;
Temp at the top; -8C
New snow since close; 20cm
Base at the top; 300cm
As mentioned above, there’s still plenty of time left in the season to get to Nozawa and enjoy some great spring skiing. Clearly, conditions are more than ample but equally, accommodation and lift prices are friendly too. Have a look at our Easter Family Ski Holiday deal below.
