  • I visited in the Masters tournament. And gondola 2.8 km and 4 km of two further lift more than 1 km long runway distance, is a far cry from ski area in the Kanto. Snow is good! You want to come back again

  • It is a diverse courses of intermediate slopes, gentle slopes and snow, non-compacted snow, steep slopes, many skiers can enjoy the slopes. Was able to glide in the barn at low temperatures in January and a steady state. Most courses to choose from the gondola ride up to the top. Day sailer long course like snow, but was very slippery answers. It is a ski resort for ski resorts or gondola lift tickets & restaurant is a little higher than I feel and enjoy.

  • Home in the Iwate Prefecture, so go about 10 times every season. By the way is a skier. APPI goodness is what say "snow sound" "course development goodness" for I think two points. Slide towards "Sailer", "second", avoiding the "Club runs' crowded during the high season is almost a family goes. Even Saturdays and Sundays, such as lifts, lift hooded Quad so nice. If you skate some recommended "Sailer", "second" area. I feel especially in March and snow nishimori → Center → → Sailer in the second order is good. Go to nishimori slipped during the upcoming second quarters after Sailer, second to crawl, and "different snow conditions! "And there are things that I was surprised. Center runs a season, lift 2 is renewed. A pair of ordinary is sorry, but no. 2 lift before, a little sooner than now. Also, I think missed border t-bar lift no. 5, so the border especially enjoy. I've stayed in both hotels, building, Tower, Villa, annex. Annex other than the direct access on the ski slope. Those wishing to ski and Board come and visit!
