Norn Minakami review by John Little
Hmmm... Norn just didn't work for us, but that was mainly our fault, not theirs.

We drove from Tokyo on a weekend because we were desperate for some early-season skiing, but didn't have the time available to drive up to Marunuma.

Fantastic night snowboaring/skiing!

There are two lengthy runs that go about 1km a piece and they do give you a good challenge. The night boarding begins at 4:30pm and goes until 10pm. So you can almost get the equivalent of a full day at many resorts. And the great thing for those outside the immediate area is that it is 3km!! from the Minakami IC.
