Yomase Onsen resort review (Yamanouchi Town, Nagano)

Yomase Onsen

Sorry this run is closed for private use.
This was my first time to visit Yomase Onsen.

On the first day I had an enjoyable time. The quad is fast and there was no long queues.

Some of the courses were closed for club slalom practice but only about 2/5th of the courses so there was still plenty of places to slide. However on the third day over half or even close to three quartets of the runs were closed for slalom practice. Everyone who wasn't in one the clubs was basically restricted to the one main run. This was really unenjoyable and luckily Yomase Onsen is linked with X-Jam and Mt. Kosha so there were other places to ride.

If I was restricted to just Yomase Onsen and over half the runs were closed I think I would have been asking for my money back.
Date visited: From 11 January, 2014 To 13 January, 2014
Snow condition on visit: The snow was nice and fresh the first day, a little hard packed the second day and fresh but wet on the third day.
Things I liked: The fast quad lift and its relatively quiet.
Things I didn't like: Closed courses!
Recommended for: Beginner riders
Not recommended for: Intermediate riders
Advanced riders
