The atmosphere of this resort was great.

The only thing I didn't like was how short the runs were.

It's perfect for the beginner skier/snowboarder but not for the intermediate/advanced skier. I only bought a lift ticket to ski the Naeba side since I've been to Kagura before.

Next time I will be sure to ski both resorts since it offers more variety when it comes to the runs.
Date visited: From 25 January, 2014 To 25 January, 2014
Snow condition on visit: A 1cm or 2cm of fresh snow but underneath it was very icy.
Things I liked: The wait time for the gondola was none at all which was nice since many of the other lift required a wait time. I really enjoyed the variety of restaurants to choose from when it came to lunch. The terrain park was incredible! The variety of jumps was great.
Things I didn't like: The runs were too short. I felt that I spent more time on the chairlift then on the actually run. I wished the conditions could have been a little better due to so many of the runs being icy. I also felt that the runs were too groomed for my liking.
Recommended for: Beginner riders
Intermediate riders
