Above the clouds

We have been having several “pinch me” moments lately in Nozawa Onsen. Yesterday was one of those moments with perfect conditions and beautiful weather. We were flying above the clouds.
All the sunshine and fresh snow created a vibrant mood on the mountain. The feeling of skiing with excellent conditions on the crisply groomed slopes or in the waist deep powder is addictive. Big smiles on everyones faces.
The town is currently in clouds but above the slopes are in sunshine and looking amazing once again. Most of the mountain is now open including crowd favourites such as Skyline and Challenge. We are expecting a snowfall this afternoon and into the night before a few more sunny days on the agenda.
Thank you to @samgbson and @the_mantii for tagging us @nozawaonsenjapan in these photos on Instagram yesterday. They really capture the magic of the day. Overlooking Nozawa Onsen in clouds felt like we were flying. Please follow and tag us https://www.instagram.com/nozawaonsenjapan/ as we would love to see all your pics and flicks!
Take care on the streets in town today as they are quite icy in places.
