Kashimayari Sports Village review by Todd Grant
There's no gondola. That's how small. If you're a beginner or a lounge lizard, this might be okay. Or, if you catch it on a powder day, it's okay. But, you're in Nagano - why settle? Nozawa and Shiga are so near.

Too small...way too small

Kashimayari Sports Village review by Todd Grant
A great medium sized resort that doesn't have the crowds of the bigger Hakuba resorts. Good runs and never crowded, even on the weekend. Staff are friendly and the lunch rocks!

There is great off-piste if you look just a little bit, and the ski patrol, if they exist, seem fine with skiing out of bounds, under lifts etc.

A little cheaper than other resorts in the area too - good place to go to do some good skiing, on

Now, having lived in Nagano for the last 4yrs, and been the proud holder of a 47/Goryu season pass for most of 'em -I was surprised at what Kashimayari had to offer.

I've only been on good powder days, and I've never run out of fresh lines and good terrain.

At Kashi', I have NEVER seen patrol! Which meant me & the guys have been free to explore the awesome steep trees, clearings, gulleys, and ridge-lines hassle free! Which is refreshing, as

A diamond amongst gems!

Beautiful powder, untouched tree runs, short lines, beautiful scenery. An overlooked mountain with some incredible terrain. 3 Resort access leaves more than enough mountain for several days of riding.

Customer service was unmatched at the Hakuba Highland Hotel as well as the Hotel at Kashimayari.

Spend some time at the Backcountry Pub...endless stories and awesome entertainment.

Kashimayari Sports Village review by powder hunter
It was a great, great day.

Played in the powder under the lifts, but the best times were had finding untouched lines through the trees.

Plenty of waist-deep powder and steep pitches, and the ski patrol seemed pretty relaxed about our off-piste explorations.

Some of the softest, fluffiest powder I've skied for a while. The lifts run efficiently and there were few lineups.

An absolutely great, great day and it's continuing to dump snow, so tomorrow

Inoffensive little spot with good views and just enough to make a day of, just.

Went with a beginner boarder and reasonable skier. Pissed myself stupid when I saw them appear in their hire gear!! About ten years old and purple, white red and blue, hilarious!

Had a good laugh but had I wanted a serious challenge it would have disappointed. No park or jumps.

The one funky twisty turny route on the right from the highest lift had us racing board

If you enjoy going off piste then this little known gem has something for you.

Generally, you have to wait to Jan. or Feb when the powder falls and the bushy stuff between the trees gets pounded down by the snow. But, at this time if you go off the top lift to the right there are some good steep runs through the trees. Of course, as I'm sure you'll be aware those annoying little men in red jump suits

Kashimayari review by David Campbell
This park is part of three connected resorts. It has some short beginner slopes as well as a couple of longer beginner runs which are quite nice as they wind around the sides of the mountains. The waits for the lifts were very short on a Saturday.

One problem for beginners is that the adjoining parks were connected by advances runs, but you can take the lifts down to avoid biting more off than you can chew.

All in all,

Kashimayari Sports Village review (submitted before 2003)
This place has some good opportunities for good off - piste tree runs on decent powder days. Kashimayari gets less snow then most other Hakuba area resorts as it's further south and and is not as elevated however mid season this doesn't matter much as the base has usually acccumalated sufficiently.

Anyway, back to what, in my opinion, it's worth going to for. If you ride the top lift to the top of Kashimayari and go left off the top

Good place to the south of the well known Hakuba valley region.

It is actually linked up, I think there are 3 together, and it is a good day out. A good alternative to Hakuba/Happo/etc.
