A small resort on Route 13 between Yonezawa and Fukushima City, the resort is great for weeknight skiing. On weekends, extra runs are open, but it gets crowded. The snow has been good this season, but I wouldn't recommend going after the end of February. \r\n\r\nThere are three main runs - a beginner's which also has a few jumps on the side, an intermediate which is fun taken fast, and a mogul course/steep slope which is good for technique practise.
Date visited: From January, 2003 To February, 2003
Snow condition on visit: Night skiing - snow was crisp and ok
Things I liked: Convenient, cheap, mixed courses
Things I didn't like: Small, snow can suck sometimes
