Great place, not so good snow this year
I like Nozawa, both the skijo and the village.
It's a great place and I have heard that it gets great snow.
But this season it seems be missing out on that and being very average.
None of that full-on for a week kind of snowfall that previous seasons have delivered.

It was almost spring like when I went, early February.
I won't go on about the snow. It just wasn't good.

I like the mountain though especially the top area which may have been helped by the snow being best up there. Some nice runs and also coming down the mountain on Skyline was fun.

I want to go again, but when it's got decent snow.
