Rusutsu, Hokkaido

Skiing a day at Rusutsu gives you a pretty good overview but skiing the whole resort will take you a bit longer as it is big and spread over a large area on both sides of the valley. A long gondola connects the two main areas.

The steep sections are short followed by long beginner […]

Nozawa, Nagano

This review is based on one day skiing at the resort with absolutely perfect conditions and great company. To get a real impression and to explore the whole resort we plan to come back in 2012 for several days.
There are many other resorts nearby to justify spending a week or more in the area.

On […]

Norikura, Hakuba, Nagano

Another resort near Hakuba. A bit of a hassle to get there but well worth a day. Beginner to intermediate resort. Off piste skiing is not tolerated at all.

Norikura Hakuba is linked with Cortina Hakuba. You can get a day pass for one of the two resorts or a combined one.

Off the top chair, […]

Minekata, Hakuba, Nagano

Resort won’t reopen for the 2014/2015 season!
This review is based on only an hour or two of skiing at this resort. One day during the 2010/2011 season we decided to go for a bit of an exploration day and ski 4 resorts in one day.

Madarao, Shinano, Nagano

This review is based on only half a day at the resort combined with poor visibility and extreme wind. Therefore it is incomplete and cannot give an overall impression.

OK lift system and plenty of trees – this was the first impression. Then the weather changed and it started to snow for the rest of […]

Kurodake, Hokkaido

This review is based on a short visit at the resort. The snowpack was pretty poor and stability even worse with a 50cm layer of sugar under just a few centimeters of fresh. On top the weather was not the best and this all together did not allow us to fully explore the resort.

When […]
