You cannot use the wind direction in resorts as an accurate reflection of the true wind direction. In the case of Nozawa Onsen (in town), if the wind speed is low, you cannot tell which way it's coming from. Look at Itiogawa & Niigata City on the coast instead.

I'd say the true wind across Nozawa was mainly a westerly, which is not much chop for snow there.
