March is a surprise month here in Nozawa, and probably our favorite time of year!
We have a well-established base sometimes up to 500cm! Beautiful, crisp and sunny days, and still some amazing dumps of powder.
All that and almost no one to share it with!
For some reason, people seem to think by the time March comes around, winter is over – but definitely not in Nozawa. It is a time to switch on and get up here, we also do some amazing specials for March and April.
March can be some of the best skiing of the season.
Here is a video put together by some of our guests from last season in mid March!
We have a 1 month special in March and April too that works out at just 5000 Yen a day for Accommodation, Breakfast and 30 days of skiing!
The Toumyo Matsuri, Winter Lantern Festival is held annually in the March and is a great way to celebrate with the locals and enjoy the many festivities including free sake, ice cream, live music and fireworks! The Lantern Festival is held at the Hikage Slope and is a great experience for all. Usually held in the first two weeks of March, with the 2019 Lantern Festival still to be decided but looking to be held on Saturday 9th. Read more about the Toumyo Matsuri Winter Lantern Festival
March is also a great time of year to visit and brush up on certain aspects of your riding ability, so why not take time out for a dedicated improvement course to get your turns and timing to the next level!

April Is Just Amazing!
April is officially the start of Spring Skiing. Depending on conditions, it can get a bit patchy down the bottom and they may close some of the lower lifts.
But, there is a 1000m vertical difference in Nozawa Onsen, between the top and bottom. So when you get off the gondola up the top, you are entering a Winter Wonderland – and it feels like a private resort for you and your friends on the slopes.
Towards the end of April can be some nice warm days – so be sure to bring a T-shirt to ski in (This is an awesome feeling!)
