Shizukuishi Trails

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 11 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.
