Big Hill, Lots of fun
Last season I went with a group of people of different skiing abilities.

There was enough terrain of different levels to keep it interesting and for everyone to enjoy.

It was my first time at Happo-one so I am keen to return and experience it when the snow gods are kinder.

It's a resort that everyone should ski at least once.

The lift system is good, there is plenty of places to stop for breaks.
Date visited: From 19 February, 2013 To 25 February, 2013
Snow condition on visit: No fresh snow during my visit, snow hard packed.
Things I liked: The different terrain for all levels of skiers and boarders.
Things I didn't like: That I didn't get any fresh snow but that's not the resorts fault.
