Snow monsters

Ski between snow monsters on the slopes of Mount Zao

In winter the slopes of Zao Ski Resort are not only populated by skiers and boarders but also the famous juyo snow monsters. The heavy snowfall and freezing winds passing over a nearby lake sees ice form on the trees in curious and intriguing shapes. A little imagination is needed for them to become monsters but the row upon row of natural ice sculptures makes a very impressive sight, particularly at night when they are all lit up.
