Nozawa Onsen review by kevin
A great place to visit, The skiing is excellent.Nozawa Onsen provides an authentic JAPANESE experience rather than just somewhere to ski.

One issue and this is fairly typical of a number of Japanese ski areas is that the lift layout doesnt flow as well as it should and you often have to walk up hill to the next lift as you are ascending the mountain.
Date visited: From 01 February, 2011 To 08 February, 2011
Snow condition on visit: Excellent on arrival, deteriorating a little over the next 5 days due to no further snow falling. Snowed on final day which provided great conditions
Things I liked: Interesting terrain, good vertical, low mid week numbers of skiers and boarders
Things I didn't like: Can ski everything in a fairly short period. Weekend crowds
