Hello! The first of May and the last week of the season.

It hasn't started off the best with rain falling, but the forecast is for clearer weather for the rest of the week. It's a much colder morning than yesterday (which was lovely and warm) but things should get back to warming up starting tomorrow.

The Rinkan course back down to base area managed to stay open right up until the end of April, but that is more - you now need to take the Gondola back down now. Best snow is up high anyway!

---

Nozawa Onsen will be open until Sunday 7th May.

7 days to go!

Lower slopes are now almost completely bare but upper slopes still have an official snow depth of 2m and excellent snow cover.
