It has dumped royally overnight here in Nozawa Onsen.

Since last lifts yesterday we have had 45cm of fresh snowfall up top on the mountain. Walking through the village last night, the heated streets were no match at all for the intense snowfalls and by 10pm about 5cm had settled on said streets.

In Nozawa at the moment we have some partly cloudy conditions and light snow flurries passing through which should continue for most of the day, adding to that new snow. It's a cold -6 degrees and the resort is reporting a temperature of -12 in the Yamabiko area.

It was windy about town last night and this morning so look for windblown powder natural features on offer about the resort today. A classic Nozawa powder day today, and definitely not a day to forget the warm gear, fat planks or powder board.

Yesterday saw overcast skies and light snow flurries persist for most of the day. Late in the afternoon an intense fog moved over the resort, greatly limiting visibility.

There were still more than a few powder stashes about the resort, especially during the afternoon; the trees were the place to be. Groomed runs were in excellent form all day as well.

The forecast looks excellent at the moment. After today’s snowfalls we expect a clear day tomorrow. Monday we should see a brief warm spell before an extensive period of cold weather and snowfalls. This will be caused by a classic winter Siberian high pressure system that will result in NW winds needed for snow in the region. Snow should continue from Monday night till Friday based on the current projections.

To those who can, get out there and enjoy!
