Snow Depth Nozawa Onsen
It is amazing what snow depth we get to in Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort in Japan
Keep your eye on the road signs in Nozawa
The below shot is after the first snowfall of the season a few days ago with about 15cm falling from reports. The above shot is peak season after about 12 meters of snow falling in total. The peak base last year up top was 480cm on the 23rd of February 2022.
So that sign sits at about 5 meters above ground level. That’s the equivalent of almost 3 grown adults standing on each others shoulders. So we still have a long way to go but will be interesting to see where we end up this season. Anyone keen to make a guess as to what peak base we will get to for 2023? If you get it excactly right we will give you a free Nozawa Onsen T shirt. So why not have a go just make a comment below.
We will check back in around February 2023. In the meantime consider a trip last February or early March it is one of the best times off the season, all the base without the crowds. Check out this link for more details ; https://www.nozawaholidays.com/march-is-magic-in-nozawa-onsen
