So after some deep winter-like conditions early on we have bounced back in to a warm spell the last few days in Nozawa. It has meant some nice sunny fun days to enjoy and given everyone in town a bit of a chance to get more set up before the battle with the snow properly begins.

The resort shuttle bus started on the weekend and also as previously mentioned you can now ski top to bottom officially on the Forest trail giving a 12km run home.

With no serious fresh snow for a few days now the base has backed off and we are ready for a top up soon.

The forecast looks promising though with temps dropping right down, with freezing level hitting sea side and a good amount of snow on the cards over the next few days

Not the huge dump like we received a little while ago but should be consistent, with the decent base should be in for some fun conditions. Those coming now can enjoy the almost private slopes…
