Back home in Australia after a week at Villa Nozawa, and I still keep an eye on the snow and daily reports - wishing we were still there (two adults and one child). We feel lucky to have been there to witness Gabriel being the first westerner to win both the Giant Slalom and down the mountain races, congratulations!
A huge thank you to you all, Mark, Gabe, Kyoko; also Jess, Ian, and all the rest of the team. Utterly friendly, happy, hospitable and helpful. Couldn't help but compare this top-service mindedness to skiing in Australia, especially at the end of the season (Australian slopes will not see us again).
This was our first stay; recommended by friends who went there last year. Now knowing how fantastic the Onsens are; tried to get through as many of them as possible, so had one in the morning before the slopes and again before dinner, and in the end it was a tough struggle to stay away from Furusato Onsen with both outdoor and indoor onsens. Next time we'll know there is no need for a room with a private bathroom - which seemed to us more like an airline toilet with a bathtub - and so not really worth paying extra for. We appreciated the advise of the staff on the activities, rental gear (best skis I've ever had), as well as restaurants, and enjoyed eating out each night at a different restaurant, great value and the draft beers were very good and cold! The Craft Room made a great coffee too.
All I wish to say, we wish to return as soon as possible as can't be there right now, taking the short stroll to the Karasawa chair lift and on to the condola and Nagasaka Trail for another day's skiing in a fairytale setting.
