NOZAWA ONSEN: New Nagasaka Gondola lift



Nozawa Onsen
Nozawa Onsen Village, Nagano Prefecture

New Nagasaka Gondola lift

During the off season the old Nakasaka Gondola at Nozawa Onsen was totally dismantled, and a brand new gondola has been installed.

The old gondola had a mid-station with a change in direction but the new one goes straight up from the same base point to the top Yamabiko area of the ski area.

The new gondola is scheduled to be open in December.

Nozawa Onsen also said earlier in the summer that they had plans to have some snow making machines available this season. Obviously, we hope that such machines will not be needed!

New snow making machines confirmed!

They will be placed by the Yamabiko D course and Uenotaira courses on the upper area of Nozawa Onsen.
