Seems that today is the first day in a while where there has been no overnight snowfalls on the mountain. Perhaps the groomed runs will be the pick of the bunch this morning with firm, fast and clean conditions. Tree runs will remain mostly tracked out until we receive fresh snow - which is expected tonight.

It is a cloudy and grey start to the day.

Yesterday was good early, but during the afternoon the sun warmed the snow almost to slush in all but North facing or high altitude areas. Nevertheless, that did not stop riders from enjoying themselves of course.

It looks like we have a very interesting week ahead in Nozawa Onsen if you are a skier or boarder. In the next five days we expect two solid dumps of fresh snow. Snow should commence later this afternoon, building in intensity. It's looking like we may receive around 20-30cm at least overnight. Tomorrow, snowfalls and moderately strong winds should continue for the day. Hopefully not enough to affect lift operations on the mountain.

Sunday should temporarily clear before some marginal conditions pass through on Monday. The freezing level is forecast to sit at around 1000m, so we will see rain on the lower half of the mountain but snow up top. Monday night the temperature will drop and a nice sized dump is expected. Following that, cold temperatures and snow showers should persist for at least a couple of days.
