Nozawa Onsen 25th-28th Jan 2012
My latest trip up to Nozawa Onsen. Powder fest. Just amazing but it almost never stopped snowing for 3 days and the roads on the way home were sketchy.
Day one was like 50cm of fresh on a firm base layer. Wonderful conditions for cruising through the woods and sidecountry.
Had some fantastic runs through amazing lines without a single sign that anyone had passed that way before.
Day two brought 80cm of fresh and was fantastic. Every run on every slope had at least 20cm of fresh on top of the corduroy.
Day 3 brought another 60cm
. Just ridiculous Powder. My 161 Volkl did well but I am thinking about getting a full on powder board for these occasions.
Here is a short vid and some pics. Most of the time the snow was falling so much we just couldn't get the camera out.
