Not one of the bigger resorts in Gifu, this place is decent if you live in the area or want a change.

The resort is pretty much made up of the side of a hill - no long tree-lined runs here, just an open area serviced by about 9 lifts.

They claim to have a 42 degree slope, but I certainly couldn't find it. Maybe they meant 4.2 degree :)
