Hunter Mountain review by Eric
This is the worst resort I have been to in Japan. Extremely crowded, I means more than 30 minutes for lifts. Rental process is unclear, and extremely time consuming. It took us 1.5 hours to get lift tickets and rentals. The lift requires deposits for lift tickets (1000 yen per ticket), and for the restaurants (at least at the curry place, 500 yen) so make sure you bring extra cash. I won't be going back.
Date visited: From 11 February, 2011
Snow condition on visit: Not a whole lot of snow at the base, but it was sufficient.
Things I liked: Proximity to Tokyo
Things I didn't like: About everything else
