Ciao Ontake Snow Resort
チャオ御岳スノーリゾート
Takayama City, Gifu
Submitted by severance26 on 27th January 2015
Good time to go to Ciao
With a coupon the wife and I got tickets for 3000 plus a meal voucher. Actually they accidentally gave us two of those so I paid 3000 for a ticket and 2000 in meal vouchers...!

Parking was free. Not many cars in the lot when I cruised in at 9AM...

It was a beautiful day, cold and clear. The snow was hard pack but very easy to ride, not chunky or icy.

With so few people, Ciao is a great place to teach

Hida Takayama review by number9
This is by far the smallest resort I've been to, but it was good fun for at least half a day, especially after fresh snowfall.

Because it's such a small resort, there isn't the competition for pow. And despite there being only three lifts, the run down from the top lift offers some challenges

Hounikidaira review by Haracas
This is one of the closer ski resorts to Takayama, with a direct bus going up to it every 40-60 minutes at the cost of Y1200 and a 40 minute bus ride.

A day package can be bought from the Takayama bus centre which includes a round trip ride and a day pass to the ski lifts (normally Y3000) for 4500. You save about Y700. A three day pass is also available for just the slopes alone at Y5000.

Hirayu Onsen
This hill is found in the town of Hirayu Onsen on Route 158 in the Eastern part of Hida in Gifu-ken. It is also on the Northern flanks of Mount Norikura and just south of Yakedake and the Abo Pass. The base elevation is 1300 metres with the top elevation being 1800 metres. This elevation usually gives the resort very good dry snow. As it is just a small locally run hill the lift tickets are cheap and next to

Hida Takayama review by Roland
After a big dump - head here for great virgin powder skiing/boarding - very quiet midweek.

If the very top chairlift is open - try it.

It's a severe gradient and has a nice little lip to get air - also great views from the top

Yamaboku Wild Snow Park

Yamaboku Wile Snow Park
Although small this resort offers some excellent variety with something for every skill level. By far the best feature is the lack of queues at the lifts, thus making it possible to get a lot more time on the slopes than at Niigata etc.

For the adventurous there’s a 13km run which is supposedly the longest in Japan.

Beautiful scenery and close proximity too many onsens make for a very relaxing and fun filled getaway

Mondeus Hidakuraiyama Snow Park review by bruce
I had my first snowboarding experience at Mondeus, and fortunately I enjoyed the snowboarding enough to try at other venues.

Not good for beginners, pretty boring slopes as well, mostly just flat and straight, not very wide.

I don't want to be too negative, but you can do better - especially for your first try

Hirayu Onsen review (submitted before 2003)
Wow!! What a great little place!

This place is in northern Hida next to the Abo tunnel near Hirayu. It's tricky to get to from anywhere really, due to it being far from anywhere civilized. There is basically one big chairlift and two smaller chairs (for the beginner runs). From the top of the big chair you can slide left left left and take the gentle panorama course. Those with nuts can get off and try some really hairy stuff

Yamaboku Wild Snow Park
Good resort for a relaxed weekends skiing/boarding. 2 or 3 places to eat at the botom of the runs, parking also 2 mins walk to the lifts. Limited runs but very good green for beginers and 2 steep runs up top. Some reasonable off-piste to be found as well. Passes are actually Y2500/Y3500 Half/Full Day

Review submitted by 'Emi Otake' before 2006
Nice if you don't feel like driving too far! Good for beginners but if you like a challenge probably best to pass this place.

Arriving in the late morning can pay off as most beginners are heading home and the runs are pretty free.

An average rating.

Review submitted by 'Tim Haley' before 2006
Not one of the bigger resorts in Gifu, this place is decent if you live in the area or want a change.

Most of the slopes are aimed at beginners/lower intermediates.

The resort is pretty much made up of the side of a hill - no long tree-lined runs here, just an open area serviced by about 9 lifts.

They claim to have a 42 degree slope, but I certainly couldn't find it. Maybe they meant 4.2 degree :)
