Joetsu Kokusai review by Pusher
1st time to Joetsu kokusai and I was not disappointed. Large resort with quite a lot of different options to choose from, some kickers of different sizes if thats your thing (half pipe not available yet) wide runs and amazing views.

I wouldn't class myself as the best rider in the world but I have been to many resorts in Gunma, Nigata, Nagano, Tochigi, Fukushima and Hokkaido in 9 years of riding in Japan and out of every resort I have I have ever been to FURANO rocks!

There are some great powder courses in Furano which, after a heavy snowfall, provide great powder skiing. These areas
