Skiing in Japan 2017: Nozawa Onsen
 
04:21
Oscar heads up to Nozawa Onsen for a weekend to try his hand at skiing in Japan. Even though it was technically off-season, there was 40cm of fresh snow and clear blue skies everyday. It was the perfect ski weekend. I booked everything (hostel, skis, lift pass etc.) through http://nozawaholidays.com. They didn't sponsor this video at all, but they were amazing! Especially if travelling on a budget. More info on Nozawa Onsen Skiing from the brilliant Powder Hounds: http://www.powderhounds.com/Japan/Honshu/Nozawa-Onsen.aspx Music by Oh Wonder
