Miyago Zao Sumikawa Snow Park review by shusha
Sumikawa is awesome for a day's boarding. It's convenient to Sendai, and if you don't have a car they operate a bus/lift ticket package for 4000yen from Sendai Station (phone bookings required).

I've been there through all conditions, but overall it's very nice, none too crowded, the back country is fantastic & and the SBX course is nice with options for boarders of different levels.

On a cold clear day, nothing can beat it.
Date visited: From January, 2007
Snow condition on visit: Varies from flaky ice to awesome to slush
Things I liked: Convenient to Sendai, good backcountry, not too crowded, nice basic park
Things I didn't like: When weather is bad it's very bad, not much variety
