Nozawa Onsen Ski Resort

Nozawa Onsen, Japan

Nozawa Onsen is a hot spring resort in Nagano Ken, which has a real authentic Japanese feel to it due to the many traditional Jpaanese buildings and the cobblestone streets. There are many free hot springs in the town itself that you can enjoy for free. It only has the 1 ski resort but it is a large one and it does have over 1000m of vertical. Like a lot of Japanese ski resorts it has all the beginners slopes conveniently situated at the bottom of the mountain and the steeper stuff at the top. Having kids lessons in English and a child daycare centre it makes the perfect family ski getaway. It only has the one off piste area (the area at the top enclosed by Yamabiko A and E courses) - everywhere else the trees are strictly off limits and enforced by patrol. This is unlikely to change anytime soon due to a well known overnight rescue incident of an Australian family in Jan 2017. For lift passes it is cheapest to dowload and print off the discount web tickets here . Being located on the main island of Honshu getting to Nozawa is fairly easy- see the right hand side of this page.
