Board meeting in Nozawa Onsen – Arena Convention Hall

by Mark on January 24, 2011

With some of the best skiing around on the doorstep here is the place for a Board Meeting

Arena is the big green building just above Lodge Nagano. It was another big production of the boom times. It had an awesome Aquatic Centre, equipped with Wave pool, slides and a lap pool. Was a great little summer escape from the cold.

Unfortunately it went the way of the dodo a few years back when the roof caved in.

The main building remains and houses onsens, sauna and a restaurant with great views. Good to go for dinner and an Onsen  for about 1200 Yen

There is also a big Convention hall where they have some Concerts and meetings. If I was in charge of choosing a venue for annual meeting this would be my pick with powder beckoning at the door step of Nozawa. The deep discussions may take a different turn!

Here’s Comes The Nozawa Sun

On the weather in Nozawa here comes the sun…

Has been a while since we have seen it here and it is a welcome sign.

The forecast is for more snow this afternoon so not sure the sun will last.

No fresh snow to report overnight, there is probably a light dusting from after the lifts closed yesterday

Amazing conditions across the mountains yesterday. Was busy early but still some good powder stashes to be had.

Then the crowds dispensed around midday and the slopes were pretty quiet.

Today will be much the same crowd wise, just had a look up Karasawa and it was like a private slope with only a handful enjoying the sunshine.

Sunshine & Snow on Way

Tomorrow is looking like some sunshine too so if this snow hits this afternoon should be another awesome day.

Light snow set to continue throughout the week so enjoy
