nvm ls -remote get N/A windows bash

I am trying to install and run node to the bash console available now in windows 10. I was able to install nvm and I was actually able to install the latest version of node. what bothers me though is that I am not able to run nvm ls -remote as it returns N/A. I have tried to follows another similar question without success. Checking with curl curl $NVM_NODEJS_ORG_MIRROR and I get the expected correct result.

using nvm: 0.35.2

OS: Windows 10 pro, using bash
