Minakami Houdaigi review
There was an enormous amount of snow laid out at the beginning of this season. It felt like you were riding backcountry....sort of. Okay, not really.

Anyways, you'd figure with the amount of snow, this place would be awesome. Not so. The mountain was small. 2 little kiddy runs, which were too flat to have fun on. A little higher up the mountain, it got better, but as I said, the mountain was way too small. An expert rider can spend less than 4 minutes getting down the mountain and that's with other beginner riders falling around in front of you.

The food was good with good prices. You also received a modest portion.

I highly suggest this place to a beginner, but everyone else should steer clear.
