Minus five here now, but a warm front is expected over the weekend. Some wet snow/rain is forecast for Saturday night, as are plus-zero temperatures all the way up the hill. Expect spring-like conditions.

Nozawa Onsen Now!

Weather conditions: Snow
New snowfall: --
Snow depth: --
Spring is over and winter is back again. It's been snowing since around 8pm yesterday evening and some nice white stuff has piled up.
Some slopes (eg. Schneider, Challenger, Ushikubi) were kind of hard to ski today, because of the icy bumps underneath the powder. Given the strong winds that blew sometimes and poor visibility I suggest staying on the groomies. If it continues to snow like that and the weatherforecast is right, we'll have a perfect day tomorrow.   Read more ...
