Ten Stones is just a little farther inland from the Mizuho Interchange (same as for Mizuho Highland Area), so it is a alternative change of pace for those bored with MH. An interesting over-nighter suggestion is staying at a hotel/log cabin facility located roughly half way between the two areas...one night, two days= two ski areas!
The base lodge is up to standard, amenities and food was B to B+. Yes, a gondola to the mid lodge.
Bad news. After arriving at mid-station, there are basically three chairs with undistinguished runs. Annoyingly have to traverse narrow trails to get all the way from top to the very bottom- confusing. Oh well, maybe some of you boarders may like it...
Location seems a mountain or so away from MH, so if it dumps, it should get lots of snow too.
