Mizuho Highland review by snowbunny
I was probably unlucky on the day that I went to Mizuho. It was raining and there was not alot of snow on the run. Since it is very well-known as being one of the best resorts in the area, I expected to have more options on runs. For some reason the only run that was available was the main run which was not completely covered in snow. Lots of grass and dirt was visible.

Mizuho Highland review by RockyMtnBoy
I have been to Mizuho about 4 times in the past year, and I like it! I have also been to Osorokan and Geihoku, and Mizuho is my favorite of the three.

My one complaint is the first gondola. It's an old, slow 4 seater gondola that takes a long time to take you up to the top. When you arrive, or come all the way down, you have to take the gondola back up. It's a waste of

Mizuho Highland review by bulldog
Mizuho revisited.

This place kicks ass for western Japan.

First time here on a weekday and like everywhere else, there is hardly anyone around. It dumped for two days before we came, so the snow was excellent for mid-March. The advanced runs have good terrain and enough length. The rest of the mountain is pretty wide open and good for beginners. Modern facilities with warm, clean toilets and decent restaurants, etc... It doesn't have

Mizuho Highland review by bulldog
I agree with the other reviews -- this seems to be the best in the area.

Good terrain for boarders, with some trees and steep runs to be found. Didn't see any patrol and I saw a lot of tracks in places that your average small town patrol man would have a fit over.

Great access (5 min.) from the interchange without the usual road danger. Didn't get it after a dump, but it sure looks like fun

It is generally accepted that you kiss decent skiing goodbye anywhere south of Hiroshima Prefecture but there is a relatively excellent board/ski experience just an expressway drive (1.5 hr. from Hiroshima interchange) in Shimane Prefecture- Mizuho Highland Ski Area.

Yeah, yeah I know there are those out there that think Geihoku Kokusai rule but I don't appreciate the seemingly endless drive after getting off the interchange for any other ski areas!

As a past season pass holders of Naeba (Niigata), Nozawa Onsen(Nagano)

Agree with Ichiro-san on this one. This place is not in the Japan top 10, but it a good choice for people who want a good day out and live in the region.

West Japan, the oft neglected "poorer cousin" of snow areas host some interesting fun resorts. Mizuho is one of them.

Dumps of powder are common and if you follow the weather reports a great time can be had. There are enough runs to keep most folks happy for a day and I've watched a few skiers and boarders venture off course in the untracked. Ski patrol never seems to be about. I'd say over the last 3 years the skier
