Zao Onsen review by edie-b
Zao is pretty huge by Japan standards. Unfortunately most of it is beginner terrain... surprise, surprise - It's Japan!

But they do have a legitimate mogul run - a little short, but it's a consistent fall line, fairly steep, with decent bumps and a lift at the bottom.

The actual trails are basically just cruising runs, if you are a beginner there is a ton to explore and the scenery is beautiful. If you want some more goodies, take the cable
