Tanigawadake Tenjindaira review by rossno
There was 380cm of snow at the resort, the previous time I visited in January there was 250cm of snow.

If you like powder and want to remain in the Tokyo area, its the only place to be! And I mean deep powder hills.

Ski Patrol hardly exists, and you can hike to peaks to board down. This resort is only 14km from the expressway and has 24 hour indoor parking for y1,000.

Go early, park inside, and take a nap until the open at 8.
Date visited: From 08 February, 2004
Snow condition on visit: Deep Powder!
Things I liked: Not crowded, deep powder, off piste areas galore!
Things I didn't like: Food is slightly expensive, only 4 groomed runs (one really long one)...must ride rope-way after long run...
