This is a small ski area very close to the town of Yuzawa. It is easy to get to which made it crowded due to the limited size. I prefer the bigger mountains such as Hakuba.

This is not a big ski area but it has a lot to offer. First of all, the ropeway is one of the largest in the world (able to carry 166 passengers), even bigger than the one over at Mitsumata/Kagura. Beginners will be able to...More

This ski resort is easily accessed from the main road in Yuzawa; 850m from Echigo Yuzawa train station. There is a beginners slope at the base. We used this slope for our skiing lessons. The slope is very wide and has a mild incline, just...More

I am so reluctant to rate this place 5 stars because more people would start visiting it... oh well, but I must do justice to the place. This ski resort is small, which is probably why there wasn't many people, cos they have fewer slopes....More

Went on the ropeway late October and checked out the view. Had lunch at Eidelweiss , German chalet restaurant that serves Japanese food only. Great views.

There's good scenery in the ride up the mountain but the best part is the Alpine garden after you walk from the cable car staion. In October the plants and flowers are limited but there's still a nice patch of flowers near the gelato shop...More

We spent a day here last February and had an absolutely perfect snow day. The day started with the ride up the ropeway that was scenic in itself. At the top, there were a couple of options for dining. The "snow terrace" provided a good...More
