Early open with one lift and powder; regular open with unfortunate conditions
Meihou opened on the weekend of the 13-14th even though the season starts on the 19th. There has been so much snow, it opened the bottom lift with tickets for ¥2500 and parking was free (I'm not sure if it usually is).

When I got there, there was 30 cm of powder. It was snowing but the slope looked groomed. I had no idea what to expect so I was pretty disappointed when I got to the top of the lit

A nice ski area
I really enjoyed Meihou.

At first I was a little worried about a lack of a good variety of terrain as there are only 12 trails. However, those concerns were alleviated as I took the lift up for the first run. The mountain actually has a great variety ranging from kind of steep, heavily moguled runs, fairly wide blues for carving, and a long cruising run for beginners. The expert runs all had moguls but you can take a break

Meihou review by joni-san
Most people are either beginners on the lower lift or beginner- intermediate on the quad to the top. These are the busiest area but both have singles lines so don't have to wait long. Other lifts and runs not very busy.

A bit crowded in places. This general area is very popular with people from Nagoya and Osaka. Not many foreigners go here. Don't think I saw any last time apart from my friend. Some interesting terrain and small hits if

Meihou review
I went to Meiho on a CHEAP 1 day meitetsu bus deal from Nagoya. And it was totally worth my while!!

The conditions were exceptional. The run was wide, powdery and not too compacted. It wasn't TOO busy (on the peak) either.

Plus...theres a yakiniku restaurant close by that has tabehoudai (all-you-can-eat) for 1000 yen! Well satisfying after a day of snoboarding

Meihou review
The place has potential, but like Chris said, the good stuff is roped off at the top.

Would be nice after a big dump -- but you'd have to be an outlaw to really have fun. I sneaked in from the side (very minor) to get the edges of the trees( had my kids with me on the main slope) and got busted by Johnny Law.

Lame state of mind in the backwaters of Meiho

Meihou review by Chris
The most crowded strip of ice in Japan!

The runs are unchallenging and raspy, the parking expensive (as was the food). The only pro is the wooded off piste area at the top, which amazingly no one uses! It is tailor-made for backwoods. Apart from that, dont go unless you like crowds.

Easily the most enjoyable 'local' piste in Gifu-ken, the terrain offers enough variety AND length to make it worth the 'daytripper's while. In a nutshell: kicks BUTT over the neighboring gelendes....

After a few turns go visit Seiji's Rodeo Roundup (Texas Style BBQ) in Akutami...killer burgers!
