Winter arrives in Nozawa Onsen

by Mark on December 23, 2010

Nozawa Holidays Staff Welcome you to Nozawa Onsen

The skies are angry over Nozawa this morning with some serious thunder and lightning covering the village and surrounding mountains. The ground is white around the village at the moment but is mainly small hail

Good news snow has arrived with 20cm being reported up top.
Bad news you can’t get up there yet as lifts are on hold due to the lightning.

The weather should pass though and the resort will be looking at opening from 10am if the lifts are all ok.
Looks like there is a lot more snow on the way though so means there will be more time for it to build up.

Tomorrow is looking major on the snow front with over 50cm expected so should be a very white Christmas

Most of our staff for the coming season have arrived and we gathered for the Annual Staff Dinner at Mitsubachi Maya last night. It was an amazing feast served up by the Ikedas as always
We have gathered talented people from all over the globe to help make your ski holiday in Nozawa a memorable one and look forward to welcoming you soon

Sounds great Mark.

Looking forward to zipping down the slopes in style, with flair, brilliance and a swoosh of the hips.

But seeing as I’ve never skied before I may need a lesson or 40!
