Ryuoo Ski Park review by stoke
Ryuo has a more European feel than other resorts I have been to as some of the courses go between the hotels in a kind of villagey way.

The resort is split into three areas - top, middle and bottom. The top area was flat and disapointing. The middle area (with the advanced runs) was closed, meaning you had to catch the gondula back down!! So most time was spent on the top of the bottom runs.

They are well set out, and well run, just not very exciting. Best snow was down the edges and early on as plenty of pow to be had.

For food try the Mexican log hut next to No. 8, the mexican sando is recommended (not cheap, Around 950y) and filled a hole.
Date visited: From 20 December, 2003 To 22 December, 2003
Snow condition on visit: Falling constantly 1st day and night.
Things I liked: Visit timed perfectly for first real snow.
Things I didn't like: No park (yet), boring top section, bloody music
