Kurumayama Kogen review by lachystar
For a 4500 yen bus deal, I probably shouldn't complain but what the hell... Only three lifts on the bottom half of the mountain were operating. (They haven't finished making the courses higher up yet they said - go figure.)

The longest run was less than 2minutes. Even the ramen was boring.

There might be some challenging terain accessible from the top with another metre of snow, but I won't be going back to find out.
Date visited: From 05 December, 2005
Snow condition on visit: A lot of scrub and bamboo poking through still. Icy and windswept. 5cm new snow in the afternoon
Things I liked: About 40 people there. (Great for beginners?)
Things I didn't like: 40 people could have been somewhere else. Lift music was so loud the megaphones were distorting - you couldn't make out what music it was. No varied terrain. Gentle and open slopes.
