Although it is a compact slope, the course is mostly unpressurized. Most of the slopes are medium to steep. The layout of the course makes the most of the abundant terrain, so you will never get bored and can enjoy a thrilling run.
The deep powder snow is very popular, and there is a full range of activities for those who want to enjoy the snowy mountains, including backcountry tours, snowboard half-pipes, and jumps.
After working up a sweat, you can take a day trip to Seki Onsen or Tsubame Onsen, which are 100% free-flowing hot springs. This ski resort is recommended for those who want to enjoy both skiing and hot springs.
