Hakuba Iwatake review by harvey
Catering mostly for beginners, this is a great place to get confident in your turns. Couple of long runs for speed. The bottleneck near the top blows - you need a bit of speed to get thru it and theres inevitably people falling all over the place.

Off the main trails, there's quality runs, some natural jumps to experiment on. My first big mountain and I loved every minute. Go there. The back of the mountain doesn't see too much traffic.
Date visited: From 03 January, 2003
Snow condition on visit: Excellent
Things I liked: Big mountain, wide runs, not too expensive
Things I didn't like: A few queues, bottleneck area
