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!
