A nice place to learn how to ski
My friend invited me to go skiing with him and his sister. They had never been skiing before, and it was my first time to go in Japan so I was pretty excited. We had a package deal from Sannomiya Station, and we took the cable car up the mountain. I was a little worried because it was raining in Kobe, but as we went up in the cable car it turned to snow, and it ended up snowing throughout

Great skiing in Hyogo
I've been to Hyperbowl twice now, both times the day after a big dump of snow, and both times as part of a visit to Sky Valley. Once was nice and sunny, the other snowing with nil to little visibility. Both times it was a great resort to be at.

Hyperbowl and Sky Valley share a lift ticket, and the mountain. At the top of the mountain there is a rope in one place separating the two resorts, but most of

I've been to Sky Valley twice now, both times the day after a big dump of snow. Once was nice and sunny, the other snowing with nil to little visibility. Both times it was a great resort to be at.

The base at Sky Valley is situated in a very narrow valley, to reach the lower lifts you have to walk though the base building. It's a two story building bottom floor has two changing rooms (male and female), rental area,

Ojiro

A wonderful day out
Ojiro is a small resort on the side of a hill in Hyogo prefecture. We choose this resort because it was a reasonable distance to my parent-in-laws place, and with 6 year olds and under free, the tickets weren't going to be expensive. There is also a 300 yen discount ticket on their brochure. The ticket office is at the gondola base, along with tiolets and a small shop.

You need to take the gondola, up and down over a couple

Sky Valley review by Androo
A pretty big mountain for Hyogo, Sky Valley/Hyper Bowl offers a little for everyone, but lacks any of those truly challenging runs for more advanced folks, at least in the proper course. There's decent areas for boarders to play on, including a half pipe, rails, kickers, and if there's enough snow, a quarter pipe.

My first time up, I was more or less a first year snowboarder and was still learning. The bunny courses at SV is tougher and narrower

Wakasugi Kogen Oya review
Despite my cons listed, I really liked this mountain. It was small, yeah, so it could get boring after awhile, but I found this to be a really great mountain to practice skills on. It has a few different terrain park items you can work on, including a rather large jump and a couple rails, but no half pipe. Something REALLY impressive is a bag jump they have on Saturdays and Sundays (and I guess some holidays). It's free to

Ojiro review
Over all, I'd say it was a great mountain to be on. It had a pretty good selection of conditions for the limited number of runs it has. They have a decent terrain park and some areas they leave a bit ungroomed so even if there hasn't been snow, there's powder to be had.

It has a bit of a "best kept secret" feel to it, though it is kinda popular. There are plenty of people around but definitely not crowded

Hachi Kita Kogen resort review by ImAndroo
Hachi Kita is sort of the default boarding destination for folks living in northern Hyogo, due to its fairly central location (when compared to places like Ojiro or Kannabe), variety of difficulties, and size. Having Hachi Kougen included in the lift ticket allows park boarders access to that side of the mountain as well, even if it is kind of time-consuming to get over there from the bottom.

I basically learned to snowboard on Hachi Kita, so I've been over most

Hachi Kogen review by SnowKobe
Hachi Kogen/Hachi Kita are supposed to be the best of the West in Japan, and since the combined size is substantial I might agree.

Pros:

Drive from Kobe just 135km/2hrs. Left Kobe at 5am Sunday morning and had no traffic. Toll just 1400yen each way.

Quite a few short runs, some fast lifts, nice views at top. There was enough snow, but less than average for Feb. From Sunday afternoon crowds thinned out and there were no lines to speak of.

Hachi Kita Kogen review by David James
I took a night bus from Kyoto and was greeted by a few inches of powder on the higher slopes. Had a great day - went over the top to Hachi Kogen which is dead boring unless you are a beginner.

Wish I had stayed overnight and had two days there.....next time perhaps

Hachi Kita Kogen review by Magsy
Had the best 2 days at HachiKita/Kogen. Several days of heavy snowfall proceeded the weekend making for some awesome boarding.

The first day was constant snow though there was a few icy patches. The second day, however had deep powder on the sides and even enough down the gelande. There were some brilliant runs on Kita side though there were also times when there were too many people on the slopes.

The only downsides of the weekend were the lines at

Hachi Kita Kogen review by bulldog
Went with my boys for a weekend of riding.

It snowed like hell for two days and there was plenty of fresh lines in the trees all day. Best mountain in Hyogo with decent facilities. Go to the mid-mountain lodge for lunch, toilet breaks, etc... Also, go to the upper parking(second left turn on the downhill after the tunnel), not the lower parking(same road to Sky Valley. It's a longer drive, but the road is better
