The snow is getting a bit out of control in Nozawa Onsen. We had about 30cm forecast for last night, we ended up getting at least twice that amount with over 60cm falling on the upper slopes since yesterday afternoon.

For the locals who continually have to clear it off their roofs and roads it is hard work, for the powder hounds it is heaven. It started yesterday afternoon and fell heavy all night. We cleared about 40cm off the car park at midnight and it was light, kind of like foam at the beach. Then when we woke up there was another 30cm waiting for us.

With the fire festival on tomorrow it should be a fairly busy weekend but the lift lines were almost non-existent today. Some people may be a bit scared off by the state of the roads, anyone coming up will want winter tires and a 4WD or may even need chains so take it easy on the roads.

Yesterday was a big day for the Fire Festival guys as they got the trees down in preparation for the big event they will be building today and tomorrow in preparation at the festival grounds so well worth a look.

The weather outlook is still for some clearer skies ahead over the next few days, which we are kind of glad to see. Then the snow marks are appearing again from Friday on so we are in a sweet spot in Nozawa and hope to see you up sometime.
