A good day at Ishiuchi Maruyama
Spent 4 hours at Ishiuchi Maruyama today after a day at Joetsu Kokusai yesterday.

The snow wasn't as good as yesterday but it was still in fairly decent conditions.

Got there quite early as the better weather was forecast for the morning. Cloud over in Tokamachi and as I got over into Minamiuonuma, but blue skies and sun above Ishiuchi and Yuzawa town. Fine morning.

It wasn't busy, especially earlier on - no waiting for lifts at all, and lots of them

Small place, popular with families
I have been here twice now. The reason I chose this small place was a few friends going and also the fact that all of the bigger places would be crazy busy on the long weekend.

It's a smallish skijo with two 'bases' - Ipponsugi and Yoshisato - both offering parking for free, even on a holiday. I like that. They join up at the top, and the top lift is where the only fairly steep slope is.
