Kids Ski Free Nozawa
Breathe in the fresh mountain air it’s Sunday
Just a dusting overnight for Nozawa and still snowing lightly now with nice cold temps and light winds again.
Fairly clear down low but looks like cloud covering the top of the mountain. Cold temps and cloud with the chance of light snow should keep the pistes fairly nice all day.
Being a Sunday the Tokyo crowd should all head off at around lunch time and leave some pretty empty slopes for the afternoon.
It is also Kids ski free day today which is great for all the kids staying at the moment aged 6 -15 Years old
Please tell kids to leave their regular ski passes at home (if they go through the gates they will lose a day!).
Go to the Lift Ticket office and ask for a kids pass. You need to leave a 500 yen deposit for the free pass that can be collected at the end of the day when you return the ticket.
If still have a voucher to exchange make sure that get a day taken off from who ever issuing before exchanging or will still need to pay for it
Kids Ski Free day is the 3rd Sunday of every month in Nozawa
Remember kids aged 5 and under ski free everyday if skiing with a paying Adult .
