Nozawa ticks all the boxes
We visited Nozawa Onsen for the third time and loved it just as much as the first.

Great skiing for an intermediate like me as well as some challenging runs for the more advanced.

Although the snow this season was not as good as our 2 previous visits it was still amazing compared to anything we have experienced in Australia or New Zealand.

The added bonus with Nozawa is that the village is wonderful, the people welcoming and the food amazing (don't think we've ever had a bad meal there).

Will we go back for a fourth visit? Maybe not next year but definitely one day.

Date visited: From 17 February, 2014 To 23 January, 2014
Snow condition on visit: Not a good as the previous 2 sessions but still phenomenal
Things I liked: Village, onsens, lovely people and wonderful food
Things I didn't like: When we first visited in 2012 we encountered very few fellow Australians - unfortunately this year the Aussie bogan was well represented
