Ski Jam Katsuyama review
Great mountain for those living in Kansai. Bigger than most other local mountains and if you drive, the double lane highway makes sure that it is 2.5 hours from Kyoto to the mountain, and 2.5 hours back.

Friendly staff, and pretty quiet mid-week. Weekends can be busy but still very tolerable. If there is powder, this mountain can be a lot of fun. If not, there are some fun runs with a few hits here and there.
Date visited: From 09 March, 2007
Snow condition on visit: POWDER
Things I liked: Easy to get to, short lift lines, accommodates all levels, nice out of bounds runs
Things I didn't like: Smallish mountain, 4 chairs to get to the peak, ski patrol can be power-hungry
