For a first time ski trip, the resort was great. We stayed at Villa Alpen, whose staff gave us good lessons at a good price.

It was a great place to learn, with good beginner slopes, and many alternatives to chose from.

Would go again.

If you're looking for tree runs, look elsewhere. There are a couple fun off trail drops but they lead right into the crowded groomers.

Small part of the shiga region, but connected to all the other resorts, so it is difficult to separate them.

We stayed in a hotel just at the base of the slopes - Villa Alpen (it's on this site) - and they were really friendly and helpful.

Great snow when we went, not too busy even on a Saturday and Sunday. We went over the where the Olympic events were (Yakebitaiyama) which was well cool.
