We are getting absolutely buried in new snow in Nozawa Onsen today. Official reports are showing up to 65cm of fresh snow up on Uenotaira, we are struggling to shovel the driveway just to get out the front door and up the slopes!

It started on my way to the Onsen last night around midnight and by the time I had come out there was 10cm on the ground. I gathered a further 5cm on my head on the way home! It just continued dumping all night and is still heavy now with no sign of stopping! Nice light fluffy snow with first tracks on almost every run. The groomers are back out on the slopes at Karasawa this morning to try and make some groomed runs for the non initiated. Good luck!

Anyway better go and get in some valuable research up the mountain for you all! Stay safe and have an awesome day it, is going to be deep wherever you are. May need more than the snorkel, maybe pack a periscope today.

The forecast doesn't have it stopping any time soon either with the heavy snow to continue through tomorrow and basically snow likey every day into next week.
