A fun little resort
A nice little local resort. For people in the area it is a good place for a midweek day off or families at the weekend.

Compared with nearby Asama 2000 this resort is excellent but it can't compete with the Northern Nagano giants.

Yunomaru review (submitted before 2003)
Yunomaru is a decent mountain located in the Asama-sun line vicinity.

It is on the small side, but offers some good opportunities for beginner snowboarders and skiers. There are virtually no lift lines, and the staff are very friendly.

If you have an afternoon to kill and live in the vicinity, you could do a lot worse than Yunomaru.
