Snow Fest at the epic Nozawa Onsen! Fireworks, free hot springs, free sake at festival, peak snow conditions, festival after party & we will take the shinkansen to and from Tokyo!
Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort is truly a snow paradise - a huge resort, with a great variety of courses offering something for everyone. From long, wide open runs that are great for beginners and intermediates to steep powder runs that will leave the more experienced skiiers/boarders grinning ear to ear. The super long runs of Nozawa Onsen also mean that you spend alot more time cruising down the slopes than sitting on the lifts. The back & side country tree runs at Nozawa Onsen are second to none. There are natural halfpipes, gullies and tons of well spaced powder tree runs to explore.
Nozawa Onsen itself is a really interesting Japanese snow village with many beautiful traditional buildings throughout the town. Nozawa also features 13 free onsens scattered throughout the village and many of the buildings that house these hot springs are hundreds of years old! The free onsens are well worth a visit after a day on the slopes. This weekend is the Nozawa Onsen Snow festival, an annual event featuring fireworks, giveaways, performances, free sake at the evening fest and much more all day Saturday. Its going to be a fun weekend of powder and partying up in Nozawa - cant wait!!
