The mountain is fairly restricted - only a few trails and they go crazy if you go off-trail, they groom everywhere on-trail aswell.

The whole right side of the mountain doesnt open, except for a short lift on the weekends.

There is one 1ft table ha. the snow was good at times. There is no town, just a few hotels, so no nightlife at all.

The focus of the entire place is on onsen's not the mountain, so its quite traditional/very japanese.
Date visited: From January, 2008
Snow condition on visit: Fresh, slush, ice, fresh, slush, ice
Things I liked: Staff bar @ prince hotel, some dry snow - just nowhere to ride it
Things I didn't like: Can't go off-trail, no park/pipe, flat, doesnt fully open
