No body told me there would be days like these

Heaven under the Hikage Gondola Nozawa January 2011

One of those picture perfect mornings in Nozawa Onsen. One that you hope for at any ski resort in the world.
Driving around the resort this morning was sublime just pillows of snow on top of houses, trees and signs.
People were looking very happy and eager to get up the hill with 20cm of fresh again since lifts closed.

We have been waiting for a day like this for a while now, so anyone just coming for the weekend has been blessed and for the hard core crowd who have been getting buried in the trenches all week it will be a welcome sign to see the sun.

Don’t think it will last long though as forecasts are for heavy snow tonight and can see a few snow clouds looming in the distance

Yesterday was amazing conditions for powder hounds on the mountain with stories coming back of chest deep runs.
The outlook is for lots of sunshine next week and temps are set to rise a bit. Kind of looking forward to it!
Anyway today may just be the best day of the season again! Just keeps getting better so get out and enjoy it.

Run for cover dumping main street Nozaw
