What a day yesterday in Nozawa Onsen. You could see many smiling faces all over the ski resort with knee deep powder even on some of the groomers. A heavy fall of snow in the morning gave way to a cloudless blue sky in the afternoon. Fantastic views from Yamabiko and Uenotaira. On top the temperatures remained cold through out the day and guaranteed wonderful snow conditions.

Today blue sky as far as you can see in Nozawa. As temperatures are on the rise down in the village, still in the minus further up. Great conditions on and off the slopes. Sun bathing is definitely on the lunch menu here in Nozawa today. Make the most out of it and do not forget your sun cream.

Still looks that we get some fresh snow in tomorrow before the temperatures are on the rise again Thursday, Friday. But the snow won't be far away with heavy snow fall on the forecast Saturday night.


From Monday next week, a number of lifts and lower courses will be closed for the season - yes, even with all the snow! - but upper slopes will be going strong until May 6th (and there's always the chance they might move that to later with all the snow). So, Sunday will be the last of the "whole mountain open" days this season. Still loads of riding to do though.

The following lifts will have their last day of the season this comiong Sunday (unless otherwise noted):

Higake Gondola
Paradise Four (but re-opening for wekeends and Golden Week)
Shinyu pair
Kandahar pair
Higake triple (open until 2nd)
Higake No2 pair AB
Nagasaka triple
Nagasaka four
Nagasaka gondola connecting pair
Karasawa pair
Mizunashi triple
Utopia pair
Challenge pair
Yunomine pair
'Yu' road (open until 2nd)

Subject to change!
