Here we are at the end of another ski season for Nozawa. As I write this, the lifts that remain open up top still have their last day to get through, but at the end of today they'll be able to take a well-deserved break after a long winter season.

I remember saying that last season was 'an odd one'. This season one of the main talking points I think was all of the snow that we got in December. Just to remind ourselves, here's the snowfall observed at base in the last two seasons:

December 2013: 100cm
December 2014: 437cm

January 2014: 259cm
January 2015: 314cm

February 2014: 168cm
February 2015: 215cm

March 2014: 78cm
March 2015: 178cm

Take a look at December! Interesting to be reminded that January and February also saw more snow than the previous season, though March last season clearly beat this season.

All in all, over 10m of snow down here at base and no doubt quite a lot more than that on the upper areas. Nice!

The resort has once again seemed to be busy with a further increase in the number of international guests. I feel I am hearing more and more languages being spoken as well.

Happily, the village retains it's charm and hopefully it always will do.

This is my last Nozawa Now report of the season. Many thanks for reading them again this season. I hope that you enjoyed reading them and that they were useful as well.

The archive reports are always there so you can always go back and reflect on the season and remind yourself of how it all played out which is often fun to do when summer hits and it gets very hot. The links to the archives can be found below.... as can the link to that new interesting page that appeared mid-season, showing you all of the observed snow depth data (not only from Nozawa but other popular areas of Japan as well). Remember, Nozawa has a lot of vertical compared to many resorts meaning there's probably much more of a difference in the amount of snow bottom to top.

The SnowJapan Nozawa Now reports will be back in autumn when it starts cooling down and thoughts turn to the 2015/2016 season.

Next season will absolutely definitely be a 'classic'! ;)

I'll see you then, have a good summer.
