Great For Beginners and Snow Play

POWDERHOUNDS.COM04/05/2016
Very mellow slopes for beginners
We’re glad we had a look at Yuzawa Kogen because we could see its big attraction for beginners and families seeking snow play. However as powder hounds, it didn’t excite us particularly. The off-piste looked tempting but it would have been difficult to do discretely, and waiting for the ropeway was a bit painful. And some of the runs don’t head fall-line so you’re either on a cat track like run, or skiing on camber.

We visited on a weekend, and the majority of the top area was closed for ski racing, leaving only a small slither of a slope for the public. It’s a small enough ski resort already without closing most of it off.

We were happy to escape across to Gala and Ishiuchi where there were some nice fall line runs.
