Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort
Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort is split in to two areas. The central area has a long wide slope. The bottom half of the slope is wide and reasonably gentle. This is a great slope to learn on. As the slope is so wide it never feels over crowded. Ikenotaira also has a great snow park (one of the best in Japan), and some truly huge jumps are constructed each year. The left side of the resort (Alpenblick slope) has shorter runs and more ungroomed snow as well as plenty of opportunities to get into the wooded areas and hit untouched snow.
