Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort: Japan Powder Heaven
Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort: General Information
Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort is a large ski area that opened over seventy years ago. As seen in the picture below, Nozawa Onsen Village is located at the foot of the Nozawa Onsen ski resort, which spans across three main areas. There is plenty of terrain to explore, offering over fifty kilometres of trails or pistes beginning at an elevation of 1085 meters with 297 hectares of skiing surface. One of the pluses of skiing at Nozawa is that there really is something for everybody (see stats below). There are family friendly wide open pistes, some difficult mogul runs plus it offers some great powder days between the marked runs too. Active skiers will find a terrain park with jumps, rails, boxes and an eighty metre pipe to get the adrenalin pumping.
