Great snow, good variety
Myoko is still a quaint village though it appears to be undergoing a rapid transition as visitor numbers increase. There are plenty of small, cheap restaurants to choose from though the quality is only average - as is the variety of food on offer.

There are several alternative resorts that are relatively easy to access within 30 to 40 minutes via shuttle. However if your visit is during a busy time you may find yourself waiting for infrequent services and not being able to board the bus anyway as it's too small!

Myoko and its neighbouring resorts are well geared towards families and/or beginner to intermediate skiiers. Many runs are wide and uncrowded and well serviced by a good lift capacity. The only day any lift lines were seen was on Sundays - pretty typical wherever you ski worldwide!

There are limited offerings for those more advanced.

The key question is - would I return?

If I had family in tow definitely - however as a skier looking for challenge I'd probably go elsewhere.
