Big heel side turn in Nozawa Onsen Yamabiko area on a big snow day

Snow, Snow and more Snow in today's report

We have already lost count of how much snow has fallen in Madarao Mountain Resort and it is still snowing.

We know this though. In the Snowball Chalet front garden it is thigh deep. We are very very happy.

Today we headed over to Nozawa Onsen to ride fresh pow and check out the new gondola. Madarao Mountain and Nozawa now have a joint lift pass so you can stay at Snowball Chalet and use your Madarao pass at Nozawa for fun day trips.

It was so good to ride perfect powder again. It has been too long but we also know a lot of our fabulous guests who would have been visiting this year will be missing out. It makes us so sad.

Today was also the first day our chef Kudo san and I rode our brand spanking new 2021 Jones snowboards and gotta say they did not disappoint.

The temps hovered around -4 degrees C and the wind was light to medium.
