  • 1/4 I go to Kagura from kodachi. 1/3 as it was not is the snow is. Holiday only opened the mountain course. And because the amount of snow board or not wounds. During the advanced course and the narrow crowded slightly scary. (From the crowded mountain course open to I guess). * Entered the ski lessons (on the mitsumata) is, at this time the teacher said fine snow amount is this snow is snow, after 1-2 months of snow ride, rest assured, it was received by the spring (spring skiing until snow plenty) with was. Snow is very slippery. Mossari non-compacted snow is groomed, and snow. Good weather was 1/5 1/5 nights, 1/6,1/7 had snow. Started crowded is crowded on weekdays, 1/5, 1/6, leaving lunch refugee to 1/7. (To locate the mitsumata place 11:45, in vain. ) To a free rest stations there is small. & Racer's and their families and good reception. Restaurant lunch doesn't move people over to eat. Kids lift ticket free so many staff, but maybe lunch break long finished eating I think I'd like it, but it doesn't move! Go (fatigue by still runs don't want to go) I said I think. Two preschool-age children with families who have sandwiches and French fries are looking for a place when he started to eat while standing, maybe I gave up and became truly poor. (Did not become smile smile and off tired moms about adult-only group had ceded the seat, but, say thank you, but still good. ) Can be purchased at the lift ticket office, it is half from ticket 2 days until the ticket. If buy at your hotel stay, if the ticket has been three days. One day, but of course it is also cheaper per Office 3 days ticket pricing but cannot buy it. Stay 3 day ticket pricing, in accommodation voucher at checkout, so you can exchange at the box office. Hits since the holiday was very crowded lift ticket office. Good snow and a wide period long, and good access from Tokyo. And kids lift ticket free of charge. Yes it's crowded there. Lack of capacity for lunch and resting is complaining.

  • I came to want to ski with the children in a long time, I was a little scared from the Inn near the ski area. Rental shop with a set of walking to the ropeway, ropeway in ski resort that is that for the first time, out of countenance. Even crowded than I thought and it was hyouhinuke. Rise above the weather better immediately lifts and, was the best ride right here. Into the first snowboard school children, in a two-hour lesson I alone ski now. Attention is school form a little progress, but the cards are not accepted. Restaurant is clean, not crowded in the old and comfortable. I don't know if I went hungry, but also want to go skiing.
