Alts Bandai review by SmittyGuy03
The first ski experience in Japan (have since had others to compare).

Must say was very impressed. Lots of options for varying degrees of difficulty. All runs were well groomed. Many lift options to keep the lines short, never waited. Lower runs could tend to get a bit crowded, but upper runs opened into an array of different slopes and were quite open. Lots of options for food, a lunch of burger and fries was 1,000Y.

Nice recreation area for jumps, rails, etc.

Overall was very pleased and would be happy to go back.
