SKI JAPAN

While the Europeans have their addictive après ski scene, the Japanese boast natural hot springs - arguably the best way to soothe ski aches. Resorts offer an authentic Japanese experience as well as family-friendly accommodation and English-speaking staff. Powder wise, Japanese snow is often referred to as JAPOW, because it’s light, dry, and there’s plenty of it.

Nozawa Onsen

The snow is only half of it. Nozawa Onsen is both a hot spring and a ski region. As one of the oldest ski resorts in Japan, the cobblestone village with its ryokan (traditional Japanese inns) are as popular as the abundance of snow.
