Shizukuishi review by ShimodaFlow
This resort lives up to the rep... First run of the day @ 9:09 am the Mens Downhill was perfect... fast beyond words...plenty of room to let the skis run wild, love the SLOW DOWN signs on a downhill course... Yea right...

The weather was sunny, no clouds & Iwate-san was out to the left and proud. The rest of resort was good for the level it was desgined for.

The snowboard park was OK, nothing to drive 2 hours for, but it is safe and I think that is the resorts wishes. Parking at the Gondalas is for people that can handle the steep runs, if you are new, park in the family area (1st choice) or the hotel area. After 4pm the runs are iced and very fast :), not the way to end a day for the new people to the slopes:(.

Overall a great place to let your speed demon loose... the ladies downhill is great for boarders too....
Date visited: From 29 January, 2005
Snow condition on visit: Great in am. a little wet in afternoon.
Things I liked: Long runs.....fast and faster yet...
Things I didn't like: Really warm day & lunch is pricey
