Tazawako review
Living in Akita, this resort is a great option because it's one of the bigger mountains up here. It's not too bad either. On a good day you can find funs powder lines on fairly steep runs! Obviously like many other ski hills in Akita, nothing is super steep, which is a bummer, but still fun nonetheless!

Tazawako has something for everyone! so it can accomodate for a family trip or just someone who wants to make some turns and sniff out some POWDER ;) all in all, its a great ski-jo.

Annnnd, if you happen to get there on a clear day, the view of the lake below is absolutely amazing.
Date visited: From 2010 To 2011
Snow condition on visit: Varied
Things I liked: Bigger than other mtns in Akita, runs for everyone
Things I didn't like: It can get CRAZY windy up there!
