Adatara Kogen review by bryan79
I think it is the worst ski resort that I have been so far (compared to Zao, Kita-shiga Komaruyama, Hakuba Happo, Kashimayari). The beginner slope is quite steep and short. I was expecting good snow powder since it is February but it turned out to be as hard as rock. It was painful for people to fall down. The crowd of people was too big. One has to wait for 15-20 mins average just for a ski/snowboard lift. Only two 2 lifts operating. So, you can only ski/snowboard like 2-3 times per hour, that was pathetic.

In short, I don't recommend it.
Snow condition on visit: Very little snow powder. The surface was very hard.
Things I liked: Ski lift operates until 6 pm.
Things I didn't like: Steep slope for beginners. Short Course.
