Santa drops by early in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on December 24, 2012

Hope Santa brings some new powder boards for Christmas think we will need them in Nozawa

Base up top: 195 cm        Temp Top;  – 8 Degrees

Base at bottom; 85 cm

New Snow since close: 40 cm

Weather; Dumping Snow

As promised Nozawa is well and truly covered in snow for Christmas with a huge 40cm dump overnight and still going strong.

Walked home from the Onsen about 11pm last night and could still see the stars. But when we woke up this morning could feel the silence that only a good dump of snow can bring. Sure enough it was the first day of the season I really had to dig my way out the front door.

So lots of people clambering to get the powder boards strapped on and get up the hill this morning. Better go and take a closer look all in the name of research!

Anyone keen for a Taco Yaki ball this is a great little hole in the Wall at Iiyama
