    GALA Yuzawa on a weekend

    A number of years back I visited GALA Yuzawa on a Saturday. It was mad busy and put me off, but read things muikabochi and others said about it being much better on weekdays. Any feedback from, say, last season? Cheers
  2. This morning was a Gala morning, so I thought 'let's Gala'. And Gala I did. There's a bit of a silly back story and my morning was cut short: http://www.snowjapan...my-lift-ticket/ But while I was there it was great. The snow was really really good. I was quite shocked considering how spring it was on Sunday just up the road. That snowfall the other day really did some big favours. I got there early and so before the crowds... by the time I left it was getting really quite busy. Didn't feel like a weekday at all and I think that is because of the weekday shinkansen cheap packs and also perhaps because of today being White Day. Anyway yes the snow was very nice and I really enjoyed whizzing down that top run - it's kind of like Yuzawa's version of Nozawa's Skyline course - and in the north area as well. i was just about to go over to the South Area --- open from the top today --- when I realised my ticket was missing. Didn't take many pics because I was enjoying the slopes before they got crowded, but here are just a few Looking north into Paradise Alley Maiko in the background top left Not sure what was going on here!!

  3. Yuzawa Tourist Association is offering special plans with minshuku/lodge accommodations plus half day lift tickets valid at the following areas: Gala Yuzawa Kogen Ipponsugi Naspa Ski Garden Kayama Captain Coast Yuzawa Park Ski Yuzawa Nakazato Iwappara Kandatsu Ski The tickets can be used in various combinations. For example, with a1 night stay, you get 2 tickets. You can exchange the 2 tickets for a full 1 day lift ticket OR get 2 half day tickets. The best part is that the tickets are valid until the end of the season, so if for some reason they do not all get used, then they can also be exchanged for U-Tan coupons which can be used as 500 units of currency in selected gift shops, hotels, taxis, restaurants, etc. Exchange rate is 4 coupons per half day ticket.
