Minakami options

Question

Hi

Last year we went to Minakami in summer and loved it. Not been in winter yet but wondering what people thought about places.

We are fairly decent intermediate skiers, usually staying on or at lease close to courses and groomers.

Was looking at Hodaigi or Okutone.

Minakami is great isn't it.

  :party:

Hodaigi and Okutone sound like decent choices.

There's always Tenjin which is a tiny ski-jo with the backcountry options - but it's worth going up there on a fine day for the scenery. Stunning setting. Looks like we're going to have quite a few good weather days too. Hopefully winter will come back.

None of the places in the area are huge so if you are around for a number of days I'd try different places out.

I like Hodaigi.

When I have been there the snow has been really great and not busy. Not made it to Okutone yet.
