Tohoku’s premier ski resort, Aomori Spring sits on the Northern slopes of Mt Iwaki. A gondola takes you up through pristine beech forest to a height of 921 metres with stunning views of the Tsugaru Plain and the Sea of Japan. With world-class dry powder snow conditions, wide groomed trails and a number of steep off-piste pitches, there is plenty of terrain to keep your whole family satisfied. After dark you can enjoy night skiing/riding under the moonlight on one of our floodlit trails. For freestyle skiers and snowboarders there’s Olympic-sized 22 foot halfpipe, the largest in Japan, and an extensive terrain park which is open both day and night. Backcountry skiers will fall in love with the almost endless supply of pristine powder snow that Aomori has to offer. Facilities: Ski-in, ski-out Rockwood Hotel & Spa, 1 x 6seater gondola, 2 x covered high-speed four-seater chairlifts, 2 x two-seater chairlifts, rental shop, ski and snowboard lessons and on-mountain restaurants, and more!

Hello, My wife and I no longer downhill ski, but we love Nordic (cross-country) skiing, especially on prepared (groomed) trails. Does the ski resort have what we in America and Europe call a "Nordic ski" center? Thanks, Dean and Connie
Hello Dean & Connie Thanks for your enquiry. Yes, there are cross country skis for hire at the resort and a groomed area on the golf course about 2km in total, adjacent to the Rockwood Hotel & Spa where you can cross country ski. The trail is free to access. The trail is not always groomed daily so you need to enquire about conditions closer to the time of your arrival. Also, the trail is a regular groomed track, not with the 'grooves' cut into the snow. I have used the trail several times myself and it is lovely! Please email the resort directly, contact details on the website for more information, or I'm happy to answer further questions here. Thanks & regards, Karen
