The lifts here at Nozawa Onsen will be opening today! Thanks to a generous snow fall overnight on Thursday and a nice fresh coating of 15cm in the early hours of this morning, the snow depth now sits at 40cm at the top. Yamabiko lift will be open and the runs that stem from there will be open. It’s still snowing quite heavily and looks like visibility won’t be perfect so keep your eyes up.
we’re expecting another 11cm throughout the day and some clearer conditions this afternoon, so get out there if you can for the first runs of the season. Everyone here is over the moon that we can open our lifts and we’re excited to see everyone out there enjoying themselves.
Gondola Cafe will be open and is a great cosy place to stay warm when you aren’t on the slopes. The cafe is located opposite Nagasaka Gondola in the Mt Dock Shop.
Stay safe out there and start tearing up the slopes!
