  •  I enjoyed spring skiing in The Burning, Okushiga, Ichinose and Takatenbara until the day of the fire. Last year, i skated on the schedule a week later, but this season, thanks to the snowfall at the end of March, most of the slopes were not visible. I've never been so happy. It was able to finish the last slip of the season by two people in an exhilarating feeling without taking the speed taking the opportunity though it was two people with the friend. In April of next year, they saw the peaceful spring scenery from the window of the bus while thinking about the slide of the side hand and the slope of Shibu Pass.

  • Skate is only on the top of the high heaven. There is still snow, but the bottom is over. In the morning, the people were a little too, and the full-curve power fully slid.

  • Not a big ski area But the Ramen with pork is very tasty at the hotel near the lift There is a warm stove to warm your boots & ski gear
  • Waste of time go to the higher resorts Narrow small Mostly flat green slopes and a few short step sections not worth the money
