Definitely worth a visit
Ryuoo Ski Park is definitely worth a visit.

If you are going to be in Nozawa or Shiga Kogen or Myoko for a time, it can easily be done as a day trip and makes a change.

There's 2 bits really but bottom area and the top area, serviced by a large Ropeway. Oh, and the but connecting them.

Top area is really great especially after fresh snow. Some very nice runs and coming down is fun too.

It doesn't get as busy as Nozawa but can still be pretty crowded on weekdays.

Once the Shinkansen station here in Iiyama opens up, it will be within easy reach and I would guess become more popular.
Date visited: No specific date.
Snow condition on visit: Very good especially high
Things I liked: Top area
Things I didn't like: Can be crowded at weekend, but then again so are most places
Recommended for: Beginner riders
Intermediate riders
Off-piste opportunities
