Good Skiing Mid-January On
Looks like the first review was actually of a backcountry spot. Since this resorts only 40 min. away from me, I thought I'd put up a review.
The actual resort has several free parking lots and no rope tows. Your lift pass actually gets you up three connected mountains. The middle mountain, Gokurakuzaka, has some good tree skiing off the main lift, and it's mostly untouched by the local skiiers. You can either hike up (15 min) off the top lift for an ungroomed trail, or just jump into the forest beneath the hiking trail (or pretty much anywhere). Outside of that, the mountain is mostly for the beginners/intermediates. Like all resorts in Toyama, it gets tons of snow, but it's often wet and heavy. The best conditions are in February.
If you're coming from Nagano City, there are much closer mountains (though probably more touristy), but if your coming from Ishikawa, Toyama or Southern Niigata, you should definitely check it out.
