Three days on the snow

Sunday – Tuesday, Dec 27-29, 2015

I am combining the days for the last post from Nozawa, as it is fairly much the same routine each day, which is still super fun for us, but you my one reader may not like me coming up with yet another way of saying the word ‘white’ when describing the snow!

The village sure looks prettier as the snow falls!

Getting suited up at the ski locker

With not all of the mountain open as yet, there were some queues at times for chairlifts and gondolas.

We stopped to make a snowman along a trail were were skiing, and it is a lot harder than we thought to make one from very powdery snow, but the kids did a great job.

I wondered why we weren’t getting served until Ryan spotted thisIMG_3621 IMG_3619
We bought a bag of bacon whilst we were here, but we think whilst it may be bacon’ish, it is pork.  I have no idea of the difference, but it smelt and tasted of a roast 🙂

brown bacon and snow, worst video ever!

Some shots from around town.

getting colder

The onsen / hot springs water flowing through town is where you put your build up of snow.

Today’s song of the day is Alex Lloyd – Snow
