Akita Snow

A hidden paradise that not many foreign travelers know about. Powdery Snow that everyone admires "JAPOW" is here, at "Tazawako Snow Area".
There are many course difficulties so even Intermediate and Advanced skiers can enjoy. You can also hike up from the ski area to enjoy the backcountry.
Also there is a CAT that goes up to the 8th station of Akita Komagatake during the on-season (for 2018, from the beginning of February to mid-April.).
During this time, you can enjoy the fresh and deep powder snow that only people who have ridden up the CAT can experience! This is very crazy and very fun!
