I went to Norikura Ski Resort last Saturday. It was a sunny and warm day, so I enjoyed “Spring Skiing“. The weather and atmosphere was much different from skiing in severe winter weather and I could relax.
Norikura Ski Resort and some other ski resorts in Nagano will close on the 28th or April 4th, but at some other ski resorts like Hakuba 47, Happo One, Nozawa Onsen, Shiga Highland and Ontaka-Ropeway, you can enjoy ski/snowboard by May 5th (“Golden Week” big holidays in Japan).

I soaked in the outside bath of Norikura Highland Hot Spring and enjoyed the white water of the hot spring after skiing.

  1. Hotspring & Skiing really feels good doesn’t it…

    The Shigakogen will be open until the start of June.
    Had friends come from Swizterland a few weeks back that said “Nagano conditions now are much better than Swizterland 3 weeks ago” – interesting peoples conceptions (and mine previously) of Japan…usually we think of Japan being part of Warm-Asia, not close to Nippy-Siberia^-^
    Have a look at video of friends skiing if interested: www.youtube.com/user/CraigShawZL1WZJJ0LYY#g/u

    Fresh snow again on Mt. Yokote last night and still falling now…spring time Narnia…careful if you come with T-shirts & shorts^-^

  3. Hi Tyler

    I fell in love with your ryokan and will be booking a nite there on the 8th next month. We are planning to go skiing and was wondering which snow resort is the nearest from your place.

    Would appreciate if you can email me the details. Can’t wait to be there!!
