Beautiful scenery, fun skiing
I had a lot of fun skiing for one day. There wasn't quite enough snow for the whole resort, but then Japan as a whole has been lacking snow recently. Some of the courses were a little sparse on snow, but it was still ski-able, and you weren't skiing on dirt. Two or three lifts were closed, so you couldn't go all the way to the top of the mountain (unless you walked, which a surprising number of people did).

Good times
I like this resort. It usually makes it on the list of places visited every year for me. One reason I really like going this place is the 'vibe'. It's in Nagano but off the beaten track... quite close to Gifu in fact. It takes a bit of effort to get there so it's not everyone's first choice. This usually means it's less crowded than other places and even then there is a 'local' feel

A great medium resort with great snow and good views
Norikura is a medium sized resort to the west of Matsumoto, Nagano, about 100k from my house, it took about 90 mins to get there, half motorway half small roads, that is the only option. It is not far from Kamikochi, and to get there from Matsumoto you have to follow a small mountain road that crisscrosses through lots of tunnels and interesting drive, and one that would be a bot of a nightmare on a day when it is

Mt. Norikura
The weather leading up to this trip was a little worrying. My original pan was to head to Dynaland on this day, but due to a freezing level of over 1500m and rain on the forecast I decided to head for higher ground. With Ontake still closed and a free ticket thanks to SnowJapan, I decided to check out Mt. Ñorikura. The forecast at Norikura was for 24cm overnight. I think that forecast was one of the most accurate forecasts

Mt Norikura review by Valerie
Norikura Kogen is a well kept secret.

This resort is a very friendly family centered resort.

I have visited this resort a number of times within the last 2 years and every time there has been good snow conditions

Nomugitoge review
Her-indoors and I headed off through the Ina tunnel to Nomugi on Wednesday morning, on the strength of a favourable entry in our three-year-old guide which promised long slopes, a high elevation and (even better) a low, low daily rate for "seniors" over the age of fifty.

First impressions on arrival were somewhat less than favourable though, with a distinct lack of signposting or facilities and the shocking revelation that they no longer did a "seniors" pass (okay, we only had

We stayed 2 nights during the week.

Quality of snow is one of the best in Japan and great place to learn board, too.

We want to make a another stay in February there again

Mt Norikura review by andrew
Well, I am going to be unkind about Norikura unfortunately. I declined to hike up to the powder bowl and spent most of my time on piste. True the weather was unseasonably warm and the snow was really sticky at the bottom, but that aside, this is one dull mountain for skiers.

The black runs are intermediate at best. It might seem that there are some long runs..., but they are deceptive. There are huge long

Mt Norikura review
This place has some good trees but what it is most famous for is it's high mountain BC.

You can take the lift up and hike 2.5 hours to some big bowl action.

You can huck off some nice jumps and a cliff if you look in the right place.

Also look off the bubble quad for nice lines

Mt Norikura review by thunder pants
Hi!, So I went, boarded, and left!

I felt I spent most of my day riding the lift, altough there were not as many people at one could have feared on shogatsu, I was unable to have fun.

The lifts were badly connected, which meant that I constantly had to strap bindings on and off.

The slopes were full of long flat sections, and few steep hills. I was not impressed.

B E W A R E!!

I arrived at 2 am, found a nice

Mt Norikura review by boarder32
Norikura Kogen Onsen is a great place for snowboarders, and skiers. For skiers there is a mogul course on the black run ...or if you are a beginner, some easy ones too.

Boarders will like the board park(called the air park there) and the half pipe.

There is an upper car park and a lower car park. -prob. better to park in the lower one cuz its not as full, and you can also ski/board right to your car!

Great
