Happy New Year from Nozawa Onsen

Nozawa Onsen Temple

Looking like a nice start to 2011 in Nozawa.
Bits of sun shine and a nice and calm in the Village.
Actually pretty quiet night in town last night just a few rock stars in the Karaoke bars.
Most people were hitting the snow.
Was a festive vibe up in the Nagasaka slopes last night and an impressive Fireworks display to welcome in the New Year. The temples filled after that with everyone praying for a great year ahead, will be busy up there for the next few days. Pretty magic location so try and get up for a look if can.

Unfortunately not much snow fell last night, it was pretty cold and clear.
Light to Moderate snow is forecast over today and tonight and the next good dump is looking like Thursday.
Snow quality is pretty good but will be good to get some more to cover up the smaller shrubs and get the lower slopes firing.

Happy New Year from Nozawa and we look forward to seeing you on the slopes in 2011
