Although it is the fuerthest of the main resorts from Numata interchange along route 120 towards Nikko, it is well worth the extra 20 minutes drive.

The slopes are excellent, catering for all levels of Skiers and Snowboarders, the "powder snow" is just great and for some reason, the ski lifts are not crowded to get on.

For families there is a Child Care centre which charges 2,500 yen for half a day. Kids must be over 2 years of age to

This is a pretty quiet resort (at least it was when I went) with enough skiing for a day trip.

Many of the runs lack a decent vertical drop but there are some great little runs to be found. There are lots of onsen around for afterwards too!

We took the shuttle bus - yes there is one! - from Kamata up to the resort to save hassle with chains on the car.

Great place in Gunma.

On the road up to Nikko from Numata (although the road is blocked off in the winter when there is too much snow up there).

Gets snow early in the season and stays open later than most in the area too. Some good runs and boarding toys to place with.

My choice from the resorts in that area.

Spent a weekend there about 3 weeks ago, found it to be a mountain with a lot of potential.

It snowed about 2 ft of fresh powder between Saturday and Sunday. Sunday morning ready to take on the deep stuff, and to my dismay, they only opened the slopes that they managed to groom, with their apparantly only catapillar groomer.

Disappointed, could have been loads of fun.

This place is the ultimate snowboarding wonderland. You wanna jump high? You can. You wanna go real fast? You can. You want a place that never seems to be crowded? This is the place, baby.
