Cupid Valley review
I liked this little hill off the beaten track; it's mellow, laid back and has good tree skiing.

Pros:
Small local hill feel, different than the commercialized resorts. Excellent tree skiing if you are creative enough to find it. Loads of snow. Good lift layout. A little cheaper than the big hills.

Cons:
Snow is heavier than it is inland. Lots of patrol roaming about. Spent some time on a broken lift.

Overall it's worth

Cupid Valley review by James Gowans
This is one of the few resorts in Niigata that is very far from the highway (40-50 mins from Joetsu IC). However, it's well worth the drive as there are no crowds. This proved to be just what I needed after visits to GALA and Hakuba where the amount of time spent in various queues drove me slightly crazy.

"Just completed another great weekend at Cupid Valley"...

and I am telling everyone that they should try this place if they are into long, enjoyable snowboarding weekends. Located about one hour from Echigo Yuzawa Station, lies a well kept secret in Niigata-ken.

A nice ride from the top of the mountain (via gondola) and the well groomed half-pipe, and board park are the rave. There are several jumps, a half-make, waves, and bowls to enjoy. A stay includes breakfast and dinner buffets

Tucked away behind the ARAI/Myoko region of Niigata, this resort is a well-kept secret.

Maybe not everyones cup of tea, but nice snow, nice ski grounds and a good day out.

If you are looking for more of a challenge, best to stick to ARAI (about 30 minutes away)

One of the less well known (?) or talked about resorts in the Myoko region of Niigata Prefecture, but we really like it.

It's not as big as it's neighbors, but has a few good courses good facilities.

Good for a day out when you have had your fill of Suginohara, Ikenotaira, ARAI etc.
