A nice hill off the beaten path.
Overview

Houdaigi is a ski hill in the north of Minakami just under 20 km from Minakami IC (highway exit). It offers some nice courses for riders of all levels and due to it’s location it consistently gets good powder snow during the winter months. It is located on the northwestern slopes of Gunma’s Mt. Hotaka and due to this orientation the snow is less effected by sun than other hills in the area. I would consider Houdaigi

A fine skijo
Houdaigi is a fairly small but compact place that always seems to deliver with snow conditions when I have been. Don't know whether it's luck or that it just often has good snow - heard the latter from friends.

I really like the layout of the place as well though with fave runs being the top-back Number 9 course and Nandaira, serviced by a nice fast quad.

Paradise is good fun too.

If you are wanting to stay, recommend Chalet

Wow! Hidden gem indeed.
I was not prepared for the super powder conditions at Houdaigi. Maybe I haven't had a good run of luck, but the last time I encountered knee deep powder was in Hokkaido-- I've never come across anything even close on Honshu, despite countless visits to Kagura, Hakuba, Shiga Kogen, etc.

Great course layout and design for all levels, covered lifts, relatively uncrowded -- all making for a perfect combo. Make sure to buy your ticket at one of the convenience stores
