Aomori Spring Ski Resort
青森スプリング・スキーリゾート
Ajigasawa Town, Aomori
Submitted by kjmelvilleives on 29th January 2016
Exceptional snow quality & uncrowded runs!
Aomori Spring (formerly known as Naqua Shirakami) has mostly mellow undulating, well-groomed terrain as well as extensive tree riding and a few steep pitches. The facilities are very good including five lifts (of which two are covered high speed quads and one gondola), extensive learning and kids’ facilities, a good range of dining options (from high end bistro to casual noodle bar) and excellent freestyle features (including a 22ft halfpipe and a terrain park).

There is the option to stay on

Early, early season... Still not bad.
Hakkoda isn't known for it's groomed runs, and they are pretty forgettable. Unfortunately the top of the mountain wasn't open as we don't have nearly enough snow yet, but considering there was nowhere else to go I was more than happy to ride the two runs that were open all day!

Price was good, since it was early season, we paid ¥2700 per person and rode all day... Snow conditions were, as I said, OK but not great. Lodge was nice,

Again, very impressed.
Second trip here, every bit as impressed as the first time. It's a little bit of a drive but it far outshines the resorts in closer proximity to us. Good size, minimal crowding and entertaining runs.

Lift system is well layed out and quick, the only way I could see someone not enjoying this resort is if they are a true expert or simply don't like long, winding runs through beautiful trees.

If you're a pure park snowboarder, go somewhere else,

Small but Entertaining
We knew heading out we were taking a risk with the snow conditions, since it had been a warm, snowless week, but we decided to give Makado a shot anyway due to its extremely close proximity to us (45 minutes!).

On arrival, the snow was about how I expected it to be, very icy and with minimal coverage. Not great for beginners, but still rideable.

The lodge is big, much bigger than I think a mountain this size probably needs, and had

OK, nothing special
Someone seems to be giving it high scores, but I didn't get that.
It was ok, just nothing special. It will be a good place if you are in the region, but not a place you'll be spending time to get to.
I would prefer Tazawako in the same kind of general area

Excellent conditions, beautiful mountain and exciting intermediate runs.
We did a trip for the day and drove out from the Misawa-shi area (about 2 1/2 hours) and it was well worth the trip. The slopes were not crowded, very well maintained and just the right challenge level for my wife and I (we're not beginners but not experts, either).

I was particularly fond of the intermediate run that dead ended at Mos Burger. It was great to be able to ride straight down and have a burger and a

Good Family Resort- Something for Everyone
I had the chance to join a friend in Noheji for a trip to Makado Onsen. While small, the resort is still larger than Kamafuseyama (hard not to be) with more courses and lifts.

The weather was pretty crappy early morning with heavy winds and heavy snow, but by the time we were ready to head out, most of it settled down and made for decent weather the rest of the day.

The lodge itself is very large and has all the

Great Resort for Locals - remote location
The most northern ski slope in Honshu, Mount Kamafuse is a minimalistic ski resort that doesn’t warrant a special pilgrimage to visit, but if you are local to the area, it can become an excellent daily escape from the business of life.

Kamafuse is considered a family resort for the people of Mutsu but offers little in the ways of accomidation that you’d expect from larger resorts. Despite it’s small size, there are several chatlets for overnight stays and a few

Hakkoda review by Pete @ Sydney
Powder everyday, even on the one sunny day we had, we had stacks of pow because other off-piste runs become available a short hike from the top of the tram.

If you're new to the mountain, stay close to the orange poles. If you go off-piste try and stay close to other tracks already made as you will get lost / disoriented very quickly. Don't venture out yourself, and don't be a hero at this place as you will die. No

Hakkoda review by TN
O.M.G.

Growing up boarding on the west coast of the USA, I have experienced similar snow but NOTHING compares to Hakkoda. Nothing.

This place was amazing. I was fortunate to go on a bright blue day (I hear it's notorious for bad weather). The place was like nothing I've seen before.

As an upper intermediate boarder (blues and blacks) I was initially nervous coming here with two beginners especially after reading the reviews. However, I was assured our group

Group of six skiers and one boarder up from Tokyo on Sat morning flight; on the mountain by 10:30. Guided by the Man, Souman san, we got in 3 gondola runs before 15:15 on Saturday.

Sunday, took off on the 09:15 gondola and came back down at 12:00 for lunch after a series of skinning sessions to get to freshies with the last run an absolute dream. After lunch, another big skinning session to get to more freshies and then

Makado Onsen review by Jetnfast
I took my wife skiing for the first time today and the conditions were mainly good for both skiing and snowboarding.

The POSITIVE: It was not crowded at all for a weekday. The runs were very wide open and it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Also, the poswder was EXCELLENT, it was absolutely perfect snow!

THE BAD: The conditions were a little windy at first with blowing snow, with off and on poor visibility. At one point the
