Snowboarding with blue skies in the background

The Snow Started Falling Seriously Around 6pm Last Night...

Today sees a fresh 14cm's of perfect snow at Madarao Mountain Resort. It came in with no wind so it should be dreamy light perfection.

It snowed very heavily from 8-10pm last night but must have stopped not long after that because at 10pm we had about 10cm's of fresh.

Looking forward to a big day on the mountain today at Nozawa Onsen. The Snowball Chalet team want to go and ride at Nozawa and eat delicious Oyaki Ringo (traditional apple dumplings).

Nozawa is just 25 minutes away from Snowball Chalet. On the other side of our lovely mountain is Myoko making Snowball Chalet at Madarao a perfect base to explore Madarao, Nozawa and Myoko without having to move accommodation.

Pic today is an unusual angle shot just for fun...
