Resort Planned Opening Tuesday
It was another gorgeous, sunny spring-like day in Nozawa Onsen today.
It was a good day trying out a Chouse Bun from Akari House Swiss Bakery, yum!
But this weekend should bring a heavy fall of snow to the surrounding mountains.
Unfortunately, the previous Sunday forecast of more than 30cm has since dropped to just under 20cm but some snow is better than no snow!
At least 4cm of snow should be falling to 600m freezing level on Sunday.
The last few days of cool temperatures have seen the snow guns working hard up top.
Nozawa Onsen ski resort was hoping to open on Monday but they have just postponed the opening of the field to Tuesday due to insufficient snow.
They will be making another announcement on Monday at midday to confirm whether Tuesday will be our first-day skiing for the season!
Check out our Things to Do in Nozawa Onsen post for some fun activities to try out this weekend while we wait for opening day!
It’s almost time to head to Gochisou Pizza for their World Music Fiesta Party and start our snow dance ✨✨✨
