A popular resort for Kansai folk
Oku Ibuki seemed to be the most popular resort in Kansai on the 30th, there was really no need for the nav system in the car. Just follow all the cars with skis/boards on the roof, they all headed there.

Once there the car parks gave an indication on how popular this place was. Arriving at 8:00am there were already about 750 cars there. (Based on carpark capacity, I didn't count. Total carpark capactiy is 1800)

From the lower carparks there

Oku Ibuki review by Snow Kobe
It gets 3 stars because with snow it looked like it might be fun.

Narrow runs, but a series of lifts takes you up over 1,000m in altitude. Some lifts require you to walk uphill to get to the next-didn't anyone take Resort Building 101 in school?

All the areas were lacking snow, but the 50cm advertised was actually 0-30cm in most places. Fun enough for little kids, but most areas would be closed if they had such

Oku Ibuki review by Si
I shouldn't complain, cos from Osaka, it's 2 hours by car and you can satisfy the hankering for piste love.

Early morning I thought that a set of skates would have been more suited, but as the March sun gained strength, ice quickly became soft and slushy affording more control and softer bumps.

There are many beginners and kids, so making your way to the bottom can become a giant slalom where the flags move to keep you on yer edges(or off).

That

Oku Ibuki review by riz
Last Sunday 1/30/05 I went to oku ibuki. It was my second time ever to go snowboarding/or skiing in Japan. Coming from USA, my previous experience is in the Colorado Rockies. Oku Ibuki was completely crowded last Sunday. Even advanced snowboarders were crashing into people. It was unavoidable on some of the green runs. There some narror areas were many people would stop to rest or watch some of the jumps along the side and it would be difficult to

Oku Ibuki review by Nui OSK
I have been here twice during weekend. Of course, there were a lot of people gathering.

Various runs and nice views were at high altitude.

Lift was old and a bit slow causing long lines.

Oku Ibuki review
Small resort behind Ibukiyama.

Gets a lot more snow than Ibuki itself.

Only 2 good courses on the whole mountain one on the skiers left and right. One of those courses is skiers only. Not a bad place to bring your family and have a nice drive home in the spring driving beside Lake Biwako.

The park isn't so big but there are a few hits
