Another warm sunny start to the day here in Nozawa Onsen. Temps are really getting up there with all this sunshine so some great T Shirt spring skiing weather on offer.
Still very quiet on the slopes but with the Golden Week set of holidays kicking off tomorrow there should be quite a few people drifting into the village from tonight.
Amazingly the resort still has top to bottom skiing on offer on the beginner Forest trail but most of the lower courses are pretty sparse on cover now.
All this warm weather has brought on the Sakura or Cherry Blossoms and they are in full bloom now in and around Nozawa Onsen. Iiyama is a pretty cool place for some Hanami action and no better way to spend an afternoon that sitting under the Cherry blossom trees with a few friends and having a quiet drink. Special time of the year to be in the mountains so come on up and enjoy the skiing and the blossoms!
