Geto Kogen - King of snow in the Iwate prefecture, known for little crowds, lots of snow and great trees.

Tazawako - Quiet and fresh powder snow awaits you here.

Appi Kogen - A surprisingly big mountain with a long consistent fall-line. Great trees and open piste runs to let your equipment run.

Aomori Spring - Sitting at the base of Mt Iwaki in the Aomori prefecture, this resort is a freestyle focused mountain with world class halfpipe and terrain park features of all sizes, plus some amazing powder riding.

Hakkoda - Tramway to snow monster heaven and gladed bowls of powdery goodness.


You should be as a minimum, a strong intermediate or advanced (off-piste) skier or rider that is very comfortable and fluid in powder in well spaced trees and off piste terrain.
