Wakabuna Kogen resort review (Sekikawa Village, Niigata)

Wakabuna Kogen
Sekikawa Village, Niigata
Submitted by jimmyb on 23rd February 2016
No lines, great snow.
Great for intermediates.

Advanced skiers have two slopes all to themselves.

Trick spots (whatever you call them) for boarders – rails, jumps, etc.

Almost always empty, especially midweek.

Restaurant is OK.
Date visited: From 28 January, 2016 To 28 January, 2016
Snow condition on visit: Very good snow conditions despite this year being a very (repeat, VERY) low snow year.
Things I liked: Good intermediate runs. No crowds (ride up, ski down onto the lift directly, ride up again)
Things I didn't like: food is only so-so
Recommended for: Beginner riders
Intermediate riders
Authentic Japan experience
Not recommended for: Off-piste opportunities
