The resort is convenient to Sapporo, public transport is subway to Maruyama-Koen (Tozai Line) & then #14 bus from the bus terminal adjacent to the subway station. The bus stops across the road from stairs leading to the Resort base.
The resort was relatively busy on my visit, up to 10 minutes waiting in the lift line. A lot of the trails are winding ones that children's ski classes take. The open slopes are quick runs back to the base, the snow cover was not powder due to low altitude of the resort & the number of visitors. The resort is a more Japanese experience than larger resorts further out from Sapporo & worth visiting for at least a half day skiing. The resort team (email address on resort's web site) helped by providing the public transport directions & the bus timetable.
