A great place
I really enjoyed Nozawa Onsen.

Snow conditions when we were there last season were varied. I remember reading it wasn't a classic season. We managed to get one of the good snowfalls, but also a spell of dry and icy conditions. So it was varied. With the powder though the upper mountain was superb.

We enjoyed the village too and the traditional feel of the place. With more foreigners there every year, I hope it doesn't change much.

Definitely one of the Japanese snow resorts to visit.
