Karigahara review by Gregg
This is definitely for beginners. That said, I knew that before I went there and got what I expected. However, me being rusty it was what I was looking for for my first snowboarding of the season. There a basically 2 runs that leave from the same 4p gondola.

The elevation is a bit to low for there to be a lot of powder, I consider myself lucky that although it was a warm (1C?) day with a lot of sun, the snow was still manageable.

The morning wasn't so crowded despite the good weather and proximity to the city (8 min from katsuyama, 1hr from fukui by car). It started to become busy with little ones (kids) after lunch.
Date visited: From 16 January, 2010
Snow condition on visit: Groomed, but not icy
Things I liked: Minimal wait time
Things I didn't like: Small
