Ciao Ontake Snow Resort
Takayama City, Gifu

Good time to go to Ciao
With a coupon the wife and I got tickets for 3000 plus a meal voucher. Actually they accidentally gave us two of those so I paid 3000 for a ticket and 2000 in meal vouchers...!

Parking was free. Not many cars in the lot when I cruised in at 9AM...

It was a beautiful day, cold and clear. The snow was hard pack but very easy to ride, not chunky or icy.

With so few people, Ciao is a great place to teach

January Three-Day Weekend. Never Disappoints
Saturday was decent powder. Sunday was maybe 10 centimeters. Monday was a full reset, ridiculous dump.

Nozawa. You probably don't need me to tell you, it's awesome. We paid less than 30,000 yen for a bus to Nozawa, two nights, breakfast and dinner, and two tickets. We paid another 3700 for a half-day on Monday.

Stayed up at Yamabiko Saturday until we tracked it out. Met a cool dude who showed me a good place to jump out behind Skyline. Ridiculous powder

When I got there, there was 30 cm of powder. It was snowing but the slope looked groomed. I had no idea what to expect so I was pretty disappointed when I got to the top of the lit
