We usually go to Okunakayama because my husband has just started boarding. I was getting a little tired of the lack of variety there so we decided to check out a new place this weekend. It was great! Not crowded, lots of lifts and little jumps and a good variety of runs.
It seems like a local place as lots of the people had season passes (20,000yen). There was a trick park set up too. Cheap, half day was only 1,300yen. We will definitely go again.
Touhoku to exit Kunohe, right at the light onto route 340 for about 25k then left onto route 281. It's about 10k down on the left hand side. There's several building but you will want to park at the furthest down the hill where the cafeteria, ticket counter and bathroom are.
