Some great snow and not busy
I went here on a free lift ticket that I had received. Lucky me!

And I was lucky with my choice of place and snow too.

Hardly anyone there on a weekday and my perfect timing landed me on the slopes with 30+cm of fresh snow and tons of untouched powder to play in.

It's not the biggest place out there, but the above more than made up for it.

On the impressive Bandai-san as well - the northern side in the region that I believe is called 'Ura Bandai' (there's a ski-jo called just that too, but it's a separate place).

It could easily be linked up with Alts Bandai as well at the top, and they do share a lift ticket as they are owned by the same folk I believe. One day perhaps; would be awesome if they could do that.

Beautiful area.

Highly recommended.
Date visited: No specific date.
Snow condition on visit: Excellent
Things I liked: The snow.
The lack of crowds.
Things I didn't like: Not the best for access but that is probably one reason why it is uncrowded.
Good for people making it there!
