Other Ski Resorts Nearby

There are various other Iwate ski resorts around Morioka and the flanks of the massive Mount Iwate. These are not easily interconnected via a public transport network, so you’ll need your own wheels or private transport to get around. A great way to explore the powder gems in this area is on a multi-resort tour.
