If you have time before getting on the Shinkansen, visit the Aomori Museum of Art (About 10 mins away from Shin-Aomori station by shuttle bus). The Aomori Dog by an Aomori born artist, Yoshitomo Nara is the iconic symbol of the museum. Even when the snow is falling, he (or she?) is waiting for you!

We also have five courses geared for intermediate skiers and snowboarders. The Forest Course and Direct Course are the most popular, with ungroomed runs that stay true to the natural form of the mountain - only the trees have been cleared from the course. Hit the slopes through the Snow Monsters and the white tunnel of snow-covered trees!
