It just doesn’t let up with more fresh snow once again in Nozawa. After the warm spring temperatures yesterday afternoon it’s a bit hard to believe. It was bucketing here this morning and Nozawa Onsen village got more than five centimetres of fresh snow in under one hour. Looking out the window right now it is still snowing lightly, so it will be another good powder day up top.

It was a day like in a picture book here in Nozawa Onsen yesterday with a gorgeous blue sky all day long, good snow conditions up top and people actually sunbathing down in the village! The best thing about all this late season snow? The slopes are all yours with very few skiers on the mountain. A wonderful sunset was the perfect end to this fantastic day.

Today it will keep on snowing through out the day before we are back to a clear, cloudless sky tomorrow. Heavy snow on the forecast this weekend. The winter continues here in Nozawa Onsen.

The perfect setting. Looking at the Nozawa House from the free Shinju Pair Lift.
