The winter has returned once more to Nozawa Onsen. We woke up with a new blanket of snow down in the vilage this morning. Everyone had an early breakfast to hit the slopes and get the first of many fresh powder tracks on the mountain. It was snowing heavy all morning and will continue through out the day. Since yesterday afternoon we got more than 20cm of powder up top. Looks like another perfect day in Winter Wonderland Nozawa Onsen. And just so you remember. Today is the 7th of April. Fantastic.
Great day on the mountain yesterday. Fresh snow on and off the slopes and hardly anyone around. Temperatures remained cold all day and the sun came out just before lunch time to make things perfect. In the afternoon it closed in and another snow front rolled in. It was bucketing for hours and by mid afternoon it was powder skiing all over the resort with all the slopes covered in knee deep powder.
Looks like the snow keeps on coming today before we are in for a nice blue bird tomorrow. Could not ask for better conditions. Enjoy your easter weekend and the fantastic snow here in Nozawa.
