Inawashiro review by marku
After reading good things about the off-piste stuff from the other reviews we thought we`d go and check it out for ourselves.

We weren't disappointed, if you can avoid the ski patrol then there is a load of fun to be had in the huge valley that separates the two resorts. Right across the valley there are numerous ways to get down through the trees and still keep getting fresh runs.

If you try the valley all the way to the bottom the only way out is past a couple of ski lift huts, so be prepared to hike out little before the end in order to avoid them.

The valley is just fantastic!!!! Beautifully long with the odd boulder to negotiate to add to the challenge.

If tree runs are your thing and you dont mind being whistled at abit then definitely give this place a go!
