Shizukuishi review by akemitakada
Shizukuishi was a site for World Cup skiing a few years back, hence the feel that the resort is more skier than rider-friendly.

There are two main gondola runs that are very long and very nice. I can't recall the other runs for some reason. The wind can be quite treachorous here so be sure to check the forecast before you head out.

The lodge is small, but they have Chinese food and it was pretty good! This resort felt kind of small and narrow, but if it is good enough for World Cup stars then....
Date visited: From February, 2003
Snow condition on visit: Clear, no wind
Things I liked: 2 looooong courses
Things I didn't like: Not many courses
