In response to a couple of questions I've had on bus schedules in the Morioka region I thought I'd start a new thread based on the research I've done on my Tohoku trips. There was a general travel thread but that focused more of internal flights, car hire & trains so anything else is hard to find. Train schedules are covered extremely well by Hyperdia so that side is pretty easy. But unlike Europe, Japan has very few ski areas directly accessed by train, so if you are not hiring a car a bus will be required. Bus schedules for ski areas however are not readily available in English outside some of the major resorts. Purpose of this thread then is to show ways you can find these and post specific examples.
