With its pristine beech forests, world-class snow conditions and long trails which extend over 3.5km in length and drop 545 vertical metres, Mount Iwaki is the setting for Aomori Spring Ski Resort’s 14 ski trails.
During the day, catch the gondola up to a height of 921 metres and take in awe-inspiring views of the Tsugaru Plain and the Sea of Japan. After dark, enjoy night skiing on one of several floodlit trails. Day or night, experience superb mountain-side dining at one of our ski-in, ski-out cafes and restaurants.
Best of all, you can enjoy all of this safe in the knowledge that excellent snow conditions are guaranteed throughout the length of the winter season.
