Today in Nozawa Onsen we have overcast conditions and passing light snow showers. It will be fast and icy until we receive a more significant dump of snow, as we only had a dusting overnight. You know you are a good skier or boarder if you can hold a carve on days like today as yesterdays rain combined with an overnight snap freeze will result in sheet ice conditions.

The resort is reporting just 1-3cm of snowfall since 3pm yesterday.

Yesterday was good in the morning. The top lifts and gondola were on wind hold to 11am, but when they opened riders were greeted with a decent depth of fresh snow and partly cloudy conditions up top. A surprisingly fun morning to be had for those who were patient.

Following that rain moved in during the afternoon spoiling the nice conditions and turning the snow to glue in most areas. However the mountain quickly emptied as people escaped indoors, which resulted in some of the most un-crowded slopes seen so far this season.

There should be no significant snow falls today, however from tomorrow we expect persistent snow showers for most of the week, with a clear day in between on Thursday. A significant dump looks possible around Sunday. Still a long way off, so likely to chop and change.
