Mizuho Highland Reviews
I spent two days at Mizuho Highland with my 6 year old son. It was his first time snowboarding so I was keen to get him lessons. The instructors were brilliant and got him up and going within 30... more »
Let me start by saying my first time snowboarding was here and I've only ever been to one other place other than Mizuho so I have extremely limited experience but I did have an experience none the less. We went for a full day during the first weekend of January. We took the gondola up to it's stopping point where we began our snowboarding adventure. We saw a HUGE line for the ski lift but given how long the line was we elected to skip going any higher (I've been told that it was a mistake to skip out on that). Only one of us had been here before but he had never been to the very top so none of us knew the top was the easier place to start. Frankly none of us know that to this day as we haven't been back to check it out for ourselves but other, more experienced, people have told us this. The snow accumulation was GREAT at that midpoint where the gondola drops you off. It's soft to fall into but it is STEEP! VERY daunting for a beginner! The route, though it starts off with lots of plush snow, really takes a turn for the worse the farther down the mountain you get. The snow really thins out in some places if it doesn't disappear completely. There were large patches of mud and pretty large rocks and wooden planks in the middle of the route that seemed to take up the entire width of that section so it was impossible to maneuver around. Even though the route was filled with dangerous and painful obstacles, we all had a great time and actually went snowboarding again the following weekend, only we went to what I would consider a better place. I give Mizuho 🌟 🌟 🌟 because I did have fun (especially at the higher points with all the snow lol) and because I've heard the top is better though I haven't seen it for myself. Given all the mud/rock/wood plank patches I ran across, I cannot offer any higher rating but I do encourage anyone going to Mizuho to check out the very top and to be very vigilant about what obstacles might be in your path!
Decent slopes. Make sure to go only after decent snowfall as they can be stingy with the snow machines
