Nozawa Onsen Lifts to Open Saturday December 11th

Nozawa set to open

A welcome sight in the Village this morning, the snow has arrived in Nozawa Onsen
There were some pretty excited people around town last night when the ground started to turn white,

Was pretty wet and heavy down low but this morning sees lighter flakes falling in town and the resort says there has been 30cm of fresh snow overnight up top at Yamabiko

That was enough for them to confirm Nozawa Onsen Resort will open tomorrow Saturday December 11th, with the Nagasaka Gondola rolling at 8:40am

Which is great news the wait is over and time to hit the slopes with a 60cm base now in place on the higher slopes and sunny conditions forecast for the next few days should be a nice opening weekend

Lift tickets are still discounted too at just 3000 Yen a day until December 17th so come on up

The forecast for next week is showing more snow on the radar so hopefully we are set for the season now

Was a magic day in the Mountains yesterday had a big group from Singapore staying with us and although the lifts weren’t open they had a ball sliding and playing in the snow half way up the mountain at Uenotaira. For some of them it was the first time to see snow and the smiles said it all. The joy of the slide…..
