We had an amazing time staying at Rookwood Hotel.
Our western rooms were very comfortable and the meals were amazing, with a wide variety of western and Asian food. Both breakfast and dinner were buffet style. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We utilised the shuttle service from Aomori station and again to Ajigasawa station at the end of our trip.
Aomori Springs ski area had a great range of runs which would suit every level of skier. We were lucky enough to find fresh snow on a number of days during our stay. The ski in/ ski out location of the hotel was fantastic and we also utilised the ski waxing within the hotel which was very convenient.
Would highly recommend staying here and for those who love back country skiing there is also the opportunity to experience it also at Aomori Springs.

We had a great time, hotel was good, but one chair only opens weekends and another chair was closed due to lack of snow but opened on the 25th Jan. We are looking at next year so will get hold of you when we decide where we are going.
Mid January 2016
We loved Rockwood Hotel & Spa. The service was fantastic, and we really appreciated the transfers from the train station and to the airport. We loved the layout of the resort - it was quick and easy to get around and the views were spectacular. The accommodation was great as well as the food at the hotel and the daily onsen was absolutely necessary. We'll be back again and hope to explore even more of the mountain then (some areas were not opened up).
The hotel runs a free shuttle bus to & from Ajigasawa station.
They also run the scheduled return transfsers to & from the train station or the airport
for 3,000 yen per person (return).
