Ski Jam Katsuyama review by Pattoriku
In my humble opinion, Ski Jam is the biggest and best spot in Fukui.

Of course, this was 5-7 years ago.. Certainly it's the destination for locals, but for those travelling from Kansai, if you're travelling anyway, you might as well make the long haul up to Nagano for the big stuff. \r\n\r\nThe beauty of this place for the enterprising foreigner, is that, at around noon, all of the skiers who got there at 6am are ready to go home. A simple "how's the snow?" as an icebreaker in the parking lot and you are halfway to a free pass for the afternoon.

Date visited: From 2000
Snow condition on visit: Mixed
Things I liked: Biggest, best in Fukui
Things I didn't like: Can get crowded, it ain't Nagano
