JP 2016 Jan Ski Nozawa

Nozawa onsen ski

2nd ski here since 2008.  Heavy snow upon arrival and on the first day on the slope, with gusty wind and freezing cold temps around -10C day and night. Great Pow !!

 

Madarao ski

went to Madarao for 1D-ski. About 1.5hr by shuttle bus from Nozawa. Snow was less powdery in general, might be due to lower altitude. Good pow was on the Crystal run on top @1300m where the slope was partially shielded by trees.

 

Nozawa onsen town

Before leaving, had a quick stroll around the onsen town, including the onsen origin.
