Nozawa Snow Report: Full moon party in Nozawa Onsen

in , Jan 09, 2012

Clear skies looking over to Togari Onsen

For the first time in a while we saw a few stars in Nozawa last night. It was a full moon too so with all the white snow everything looked really bright, was pretty nice.

Woke up this morning thinking we were in for some sun but it was still snowing lightly. Has fined up a bit now and should be a nice day on the slopes. Yesterday was great conditions again but one of our busier days so far with even a few lift lines appearing! Some of the guys decided to head to near by Togari Ski Resort today in search of some untracked goodness.

Togari is a great little hill just 20 minutes from here with some fun terrain and have night skiing most nights. The elevation is not much different to Nozawa Village so is not so good on the shoulder season but great this time of year. There is a daily shuttle from Nozawa Onsen too to Togari Onsen ski resort and on to Madarao just 800 Yen return so well worth a day trip.

Looking like may be a bluebird day tomorrow so will be nice on the slopes and give us a chance to clean up the snow in the village ready for the next arrival on Tuesday night!

How to ski and shovel snow is learnt at a young age in Nozawa
