New Snow: 30cm

Base at Top : 300cm

Glorious day here in Nozawa Onsen.

Have had about 30cm of fresh snow overnight and the sun has just come out!

The weekend crowd is already starting to make their way home so anyone up there is going to blessed with perfect conditions.

Yesterday was a good day despite the crowds and a fun night in town.

Outlook is for another good dump tomorrow night then some more sunshine through the week.

Anyway enough said time to hit the slopes!

Sake Tasting night and Live Music at Villa Nozawa

Had a magic night at Villa Nozawa a few nights back with Mizuho Sake putting on a Sake Tasting night.

Tanakaya san from Mizuho gave us an in depth education on the finer points of the local delicacy. The water used to make Mizuho sake all comes from a spring on the top of Mt Kenashi the main peak in Nozawa Onsen Resort. All the rice used in the process is Harvested from the local area too and is some of the finest in Japan if not on the planet. So it all makes for some amazing quality Sake.

Some great live music was also supplied by the Davies Sisters singing some sweet harmonies. Thanks girls..
