No lines, great snow.
Great for intermediates.

Advanced skiers have two slopes all to themselves.

Trick spots (whatever you call them) for boarders – rails, jumps, etc.

Almost always empty, especially midweek.

Restaurant is OK.

A small resort in the north part of Niigata (not many resorts around here), but decent for a local place.

Travel just a bit and you are in Yamagata - definitely worth the trip.

More snowboarders than skiers (I counted).

Not very crowded (almost no waiting for lifts when I have been there).

Fun family ski area!
