Shizukuishi Ski Resort
Shizukuishi Ski Resort is a hidden gem nestled in the beautiful Tohoku region, where rugged mountains, lakes and forests create the perfect setting for a ski resort. Visitors will love the uncrowded slopes, tubing park and delicious local food. Also on offer is cat skiing down the now-closed Ladies' Downhill Run, a rolling, powdery thrill for intermediate to advanced skiers. At the end of the day the traditional Takakura Onsen welcomes you with a promise of relaxation and rejuvenation.
Shizukuishi Ski Resort is famous for its stunning view of the Mt. Iwate, the highest mountain in Iwate prefecture. 11 superbly maintained trails including full-scale downhill race course and two outstanding terrain parks challenge any skier.
Shizukuishi boasts a combination of beautiful natural views of Mt. Iwate, long exciting trails, and superb quality snow thanks to the cold, dry air that blows down from the north. The scenic trails take full advantage of the natural terrain to provide plenty of variety, with the longest trail stretching to a thigh burning 4,500m. Free-style skiers will enjoy the intermediate to advanced features in the Easy Park.
