Eyeball surf report
  1. Banner  3Nozawa Holidays Overnight the heavens opened above Nozawa Onsen puking deep powder all over the resort. Winter has returned and we are back into the swing of what has been an epic one so far. Expect today moderately deep powder across the resort above a firm base layer. This morning we will be battling with weekend crowds so every bit of information helps. If you dislike crowds avoid Yamabiko, perhaps diverting too Challenge or the Skyline blacks for advanced riders and the mid station lifts for intermediates. But be fast before the word spreads! Yesterday across the resort we had a thin layer of powder...

Visitor Reviews of Akakura Kanko

Stale from Sweden writes:

Akakura Kanko ski area was amazing when I came to ski with the amazing backcountry and deepest powder. I stayed at a great local hostel in Akakura Myoko Powder hostel. My hosts were very knowledgeable of the local area and the backcountry riding available. I recommend Akakura and the Myoko area to everyone.
Thank you, Stale.
