Wow. Great site, you have done it again. Well done. Alts is a decent place for both skiers and snowboarders, and it isn't as crowded as some that I have been to in other parts of Honshu. A good selection of runs.
I like this place. Not huge, but there are some good runs and it is popular with snowboarders. The best in the region if you ask me. That comedy duo London Hearts seem to be here often too - I think they have some kind of deal with the resort.
The mountain itself is well laid out with lots of natural terrain to enjoy. However, the 2 hundred meters or so of flats after coming down from the run which is accessed by the gondola is quite annoying, especially for snow boarders. The other runs are better in that aspect, however I would have to say the mountain is more like 50% beginner, 25% intermediate and 25%advanced, at least by my standards. The facility is quite good with decent food.
Decent place in Fukushima fairly near to where I live. Lucky me! While not the best of Japan, it is fairly good size and has some good runs. Seems to be especially popular with boarders and an "in" crowd, but never gets too busy.
Better than most of the other resorts round there parts - and a good day out!
