  • It is not the best of the hotels nor the services but it is the only hotel with the ski lifts joint to the hotel. The buffet restaurants are not that spectacular but you are there for the slopes and o...  more »
  • Course of ski resorts all around it is so, but I don't know how good not very slippery. Only one me is that almost no slope when you ride a lift after slipping me hard, but then, so had to walk on skis. So I took advantage lifts may only be in the skills of reference level should know.

  • Nice little cosy resort. I really like it as it was not too busy. The nice cute lunch place was a bonus too. The only downside was that they cannot accommodate large ski and snowboards in the chief lift very well.
  • We had a lot of fun at this resort. We experienced some of the best snow of our lives here and it is incredibly affordable compared to past resorts. There are also lots of affordable places to eat scattered all over the mountain which always have tables available. The only downside is how busy it can become on the weekends/holidays.
  • Medium sized resort with a good deal of side-country, steep-slopes and beginner zones. Very scenic and highly recommended to slot in your itinerary if you're in the area (maybe more for backcountry?) Recommended for: - Tree-skiing, powder, steep slopes PROS: - Tree skiing is allowed in some areas (trees gladed) and very hands-off approach to off-piste in general - Decent amount of powder if you look for it - Great scenery; can get a clear view of Mt. Myoko and even the Sea of Japan - Well organized; beginners have their own areas and don't stray into advanced runs, - Fairly close to other main resorts like Nozawa Onsen, Myoko, etc. - Natural halfpipe/ravine area was fun and relatively gladed - 1 OK-sized park run (comparable to Naeba) CONS: - Runs are very enjoyable but aren't really too long for the most part - Need time to transfer lifts to get on top of the sidecountry area - Need to do a lot of lift transfers in general - Boarders beware; lots of steep moguls form quickly
  • Overall a good place to board. A lot of versatile courses, and they have most of their lift and courses open. Its just that some of the courses there end at the bottom somewhere not close to the lift so sometimes you would have to walk a ways
  • love it. great powder. big ski resort, lots of slopes to try.
