Marunuma Kogen review by Gary
Arrived at 10am and it was busy but not packed like other resorts.

Me and wife were there to get some skill training for snowboarding. The snow and slopes were excellent. Soft powder and well groomed. no Ice at all. It was busy but very short lines and everyone was having fun. good mix of snowboarders, skiiers and families. We enjoyed it so much we are going back next weekend. The conditions are perfect! Plus they were have a 3900 yen special for lift which included a meal and drink- Excellent deal. Directions to get there are right on the money and it's well marked with signs.

Great place to get away from the high profile resorts, super big crowds and have a great day.
Date visited: From 19 February, 2011
Snow condition on visit: Powder and groomed trails
Things I liked: Great Snow, Family Resort, Great Resort
Things I didn't like: Beginner slopes steep!
