Iwatake, Hakuba, Nagano

Iwatake is one of several resorts in the Hakuba Valley. Not as high as some of the others but easy to get to if you are in Hakuba. A gondola will give you access right away to the top of the mountain, from which you can ski different aspects of the mountain. Several chair […]

Hakuba 47 / Goryu, Hakuba, Nagano

A medium-sized resort compared to those in the U.S. and rather small compared to some of the big ones in Europe. Runs for beginners all the way up to advanced skiers.

The beginner area is busy even on weekdays, but all the other areas are very quiet. It is much busier on weekends and especially […]

Furano, Hokkaido

First resort I have ever skied in Hokkaido and I’m very happy.

Beginner and intermediate will find enough runs to be busy for quite some time.

Advanced and experts can hit the backcountry or simply duck the rope and get some good powder. We got mixed information about how ski patrol is taking care of the […]

Cortina, Hakuba, Nagano

Cortina used to be a secret in the Hakuba Valley, nobody knew much about it and skiing off piste was strictly forbidden. We had a few years of amazing cat and mouse games with the ski patrol. Untracked powder even days after the last storm but this all changed:

A few years ago the management […]

Chanmant Hiuchi, Niigata

Charmant is a rather small resort situated on the west coast of Japan about halfway between Hakuba and Myoko.  One high speed quad will bring you from the base to the top and that will be pretty much the only chair you need.

Most of the resort is open for off piste skiing with the […]

Asahidake, Hokkaido

Pretty much been there done that.

Beside the amazing view and the experience of an active volcano the skiing pretty much sucks. Some guys call it a mini golf place. Very short steep areas followed by very flat stuff. You can hike to the better areas but still it is a very long way back […]

Akakura Onsen, Myoko, Niigata

Akakura Onsen, together with its neighbouring resort of Akakura Kanko, is one of the larger and more popular areas of Myoko.  Akakura Onsen is the more beginner/intermediate/family friendly resort.

Pretty flat but with very nice long groomers in-between the trees so even on a snowy or fogy day you will easily find you way back […]

Akakura Kanko, Myoko, Niigate

Akakura Kanko together with its neighbouring resort of Akakura Onsen, is one of the larger and more popular areas of Myoko.  Akakura Kanko offers a lot more challenging terrain than Akakura Onsen.

It will take you a while to find the good stuff but unlike other resorts the off piste policy seems to be very […]

Yanaba, Hakuba, Nagano

Resort will reopen for the 2014/2015 season after it has been closed for a 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.  The […]
