Maiko Snow Resort review by knightvato
I really like this resort.

The bowl at the top of the gondola area has some decent uncrowded terrain, and the lifts there are quick so you can get a lot of vertical in a day.

There is great potential in this place but for some reason the most desirable spots are roped off.

It can get crowded on the bottom and the night skiing is not great

Joetsu Kokusai review by knightvato
This is a decent resort, even though I only skied it for one day so far.

It's true that the lifts are slow and not well designed and there are quite a few flat areas, but the fact is that there is more varied terrain, you just have to seek it out. The Tokamachi side (Atema resort) has decent terrain and a different view so it helps to mix things up.

Overall, not a place to go
