  • During the autumn visited for the first time. Skated in most major ski areas. But just Appi Kogen, not fortunate to skate yet unfortunately. So is the impression at eye level skiers. It is felt happo and Rusutsu, a lot of gentle slope course was more than a gently sloping and steep slopes of Niseko, intermediate slopes. There is unobstructed wind around little terrain, so certainly gondola is often likely to stop. Near shizukuishi ski slipped several times that there is 3 nights 4 days stay in the gondola runs was 2 day long odds (the shizukuishi gondola, is now virtually lost both. ) Is the best slip here APPI no wind on a sunny day, enjoy the ski area. In the winter there's not much anyone may have.

  • Appi Kogen, hachimantai range, mainly in autumn season and plenty of foliage spots beginning Appi Kogen, was very good. By Onuma and sea lines of the Akita hachimantai aspite line from the beautiful fall foliage. Elevation varies types of trees as well.

  • This is the big slopes along with Yamagata ZAO, representing the Northeast. No selling is Honshu moiwa and rich long course. In two gondolas and more than one long Quad transportation capacity is the highest level. Highlights which of course very nice and long. Over 5 km is the longest, and minimum distance of 3.5 km from the Summit. Because it can come down to the gondola or long Quad slip which of course also contact us is great. Yamagata ZAO's worst course between the contact point and different. Basically free because it is too far from the metropolitan area. Three-day weekend and year end and new year holidays apart, not even the gondola. Free compared to the ski area can be reached from the metropolitan area even during busy times. All excellent points just since it is shantell I write cons. (1) lot of course, but also which of course looks like, so don't feel rich, of course. (2) the gondola course is what slope is also first on the steep slopes follows intermediate hard course. (3) which of course continues with a gentle slope of little end. (4) too much and stop the gondola in strong winds. (5) snow is good at basically less snowfall, when the lack of snow is affecting. (6) the high lift charges, half-day tickets were was not. As well there are some cons, but used wisely it is great slopes. If you go kinda go brush your arm is recommended. High lift charges otherwise I might be left but the impression. Intermediate observer course is wide and long, the best since pounding you want to slide that is more than recommended for slopes.
