Love love love this resort. We had a great time here jumping off natural obstacles on the wide runs and ducking into the trees for powder every day. There were no lift queues that I can remember.

The package we were on was 8-man per person from Tokyo, including flights and transfer with ANA, lift pass and room only. The hotel was very comfy, quiet, clean, everything we could want. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the food, which was amazingly expensive. The various dining places in the hotel were all 5000 yen per meal. Shocker!

Having no car, we couldn't go elsewhere and just ended up having lamb yakiniku round the corner outside the hotel practically every night :o) Would do it again any day though!
