Nozawa Onsen Spring Snow Report 28/4/2019
Nozawa Onsen spring snow is not something we’d expect this late in the season. But we’ll certainly take it!
We saw in excess of 10 centimetres fall yesterday. At last count, around midday, it was 11cm before the afternoon brought even more. Another few centimetres fell upon the top of Mount Kenashi last night. All in all, fantastic news for skiers in Nozawa Onsen and a great way to kick off this year’s Golden Week.
The sun is out already and there are a few more people rolling into town already. Golden Week combined with fresh snow will certainly make for a vibrant atmosphere. With the temperatures now climbing, it creates the unique opportunity to ski, hike, bike and paddle, all on the same day, if you choose. There’s plenty of sunshine on the forecast and we’re all set for a great week ahead. So if you’re in Japan, come on up and get involved!
