Maruji Lodge Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on February 8, 2011

Mukobayashi Slope above Lodge Nagano

New Snow 5cm

Base at top 270cm

It’s a beautiful day
Was snowing after lifts closed for a little while yesterday so should be a nice dusting on offer this morning.
Along with the blue bird weather should make for a perfect day on the slopes.

Yesterday the snow just kept falling most of the day and there were some nice little powder sections to be had even though the visibility was not the best.

Should continue fine for the rest of the day them some snow again tomorrow.
Friday and Saturday are still looking like a major dump so should be a good long weekend in the Mountains

One of our neighbours is Tomii san owner of Maruji Lodge. He is a 2 times Olympian Competing in the downhill events in the 70’s along with being National Champion for many years. A well respected member of the community and a great guy, he also runs a beautiful Lodge called Maruji and we happily introduce people there when we are full.

Tomii san Olympian and Maruji Lodge Owner as well as being a nice guy

Last year he put in a new Fire Place and a very cool chill out room, perfect place for a few cold beers and tall stories after a day on the slopes.

We had a wonderful time at the Maruji Lodge. Nice people. Japanese style accommodations. Onsen “in house” .
