Zao Onsen review by Deano
Zao has such a variety of runs on excellent snow that a skiier or boarder of any skill level can have a superb day out in any weather scenario.

The areas where you end up walking, schussing or swearing between lifts are a nuisance. You can plan around them mostly but it would be better if they were sorted out.

Zao is definitely a great resort for beginner and intermediate level skiiers and boarders - they are well catered for.
