Tohoku quest airbag jump
When the snow has melted and left you all sad and mopey, get yourself to Tohoku Quest and use the off-season to boost your snowboard or ski air game. The newly replaced brush mats provide a true 'on-snow' feel, so you can lay proper edgework on your in-run.
Teams needing to keep their skills on point for upcoming winter competition circuits should be training at Tohoku Quest. Owner, Takashi Nishida (former Olympic snowboarder, pro rider for Ride, DC, Spy) has the experience to know what the world's best snowboard training facility requires, and he's made it. The long, sloped airbag landings provide the safest, realest off-snow training opportunity. Staggered kicker sizes let riders progress the size of their tricks as they become comfortable.
The facility caters to the whole spectrum of rider, from first timer kids, to uber-pros throwing their first triple corks on the XL Kicker. The XL kicker has a deck of 16 meters / 52+ feet, and a long, steep runout for safe progressive training. The takeoffs and kickers are built long and wide for a comfortable run in, and are shaped for ultimate trajectory and safety.
Tohoku Quest is located in Murata Town, in the Tohoku area. Getting out of the hectic city and up to Quest will let you have a real Japanese experience; a nice bonus on your training trip.
