November Snow Nozawa day a nice distraction!
Well the sun still rose this morning and we have snow on the ground in Nozawa! It snowed most of the day yesterday, which was a little more exciting to watch than the election!
Some great photos from Buna restaurant up on the slopes at Uenotaira yesterday afternoon. Nothing official on the depth but guessing we got about 10cm of fresh snow. Won’t be long until those steps at the front door disappear! Normally during the season the whole ground floor of the restaurant is under about 4 meters of snow so you walk straight in off the snow into the entry level of the restaurant. Many people didn’t even know they had steps there!
There are about 5 or 6 restaurants along the Paradise slope just below the Uenotaira Nozawa Lift. Buna is our favourite but there are some other great ones too all with amazing views across the valley to Myoko Kogen and Madarao. Great value meals too where you can eats at most places for just 1000 Yen for a good healthy meal. Much better than many ski resorts around the world where they tend to charge a lot for not much. Nozawa Onsen is great value on and off the slopes.

Still nice and white up top and all the way down to Hikage slope. Can check it out on the cams; https://www.nozawaholidays.com/snow-cams/
It probably wont stick this time so if around race up and make a snowman or take some of your old planks for a ride. It is not often we get November Snow Nozawa chances. Have a great day.
As you were…
