Tazawako review by alice
Probably the best all round resort in Akita Prefecture.

From adavanced runs that will challenge even the most advanced skier/snowboarders (Black mountain) to the wide gentle beginner slopes of Mizusawa.

Good facilities - including a ski/snowboard school with friendly instructors, good food, comfortable Lodge, plenty of accomodation options (with Onsens) and great scenery (the near by Lake Tazawa can be scene on a clear day).

What more could anyone want? (A board park....they have one don't worry).
Date visited: From January, 2004
Snow condition on visit: Excellent
Things I liked: Something for everyone regardless
Things I didn't like: Very busy on a Sunday
