Marunuma Kogen mid season

Question

I like Marunuma Kogen.

I like the fact that it is a bit out of the way (for lots of people). Though at the same time I wish it were closer.   ;)

The snow is usually really good up there. As you noted it's popular early/late season and has a long season. Early and late other skijo in Gunma and elsewhere are generally not open at those times. With much more choice in mid-season, as well as the transport issue, it seems to be less busy in the middle of the season. Or it has been so when I have been.

Good place though. I'd recommend a visit.

I’ve been both early and mid-season — see reviews and photos from me and others on the main snowjapan site.  Late Feb 2010 I apparently thought it was “busy but not crowded.” Good snow and scenery, and I like the shape of the terrain.  Certainly worth a visit mid-season.

I have been there both early and mid season and each time had great snow. You can see my review as well as others in the resort review sections.

It is high up s they get snow from as early as November.

I always went by car so not sure about buses but I guess you can probably get one from Numata station? The resort is a bit out of the way though.

Thanks for that!

I might well get myself over there sometime. Furthest I have been in that direction is White World Oze Iwakura - doesn't look that much further really.

For all the talk of early and late season at Marunuma Kogen, I'd recommend peak season too. The snow quality when I went last year (I think it was a weekday in late January) was excellent and it wasn't busy at all. We went by car.

Going to go and check it out next week I think. I suppose without much fresh we can already call it spring but fingers crossed conditions will be relatively decent up there.

It might be open long but I would recommend Marunuma peak seas-n just like anywhere else.

Snow is good and not crazy busy. Sounds good to me.
