    Great Resort for Beginner/Intermediates

    02/04/2020
    Great ski resort with a real Japanese-feel. There are in-bound tree runs for advanced skiers/riders and the widest/emptiest/well-groomed runs for beginner/intermediates. I spent a season living in the village - a beautiful town and people! One thing - bring cash! There's no ATM. Other than that, very family-friendly.

    Very small resort, and the day I went there the valley was suffering from a heat wave. It was also raining. There was only one lift open due to wind and rain, meaning there were two accessible runs at the bottom. There was one restaurant open which was over crowded.

    None of this should deter you as this was just one poor day and any other day would be powder and sunshine. There are two terrain parks, one was accessible on the day we were there. From what I understand it is easy to access the back country. The runs at the bottom were well groomed and very wide and mellow, perfect for beginners but the runs further up the mountain do not get much more advanced until you are past the boundary.
