Welcome back Arai!
It's great to see Arai back under the new name Lotte Arai Resort.

I just had to go to see how it had changed.

It's like a whole new place with beautiful new facilities... a very upscale feel (as are the prices).

Generally it's less for beginners and more for experienced skiers - beginners should not be getting up on the gondola.

I am guessing that next season there might be more for beginners around the base area. It certainly would make sense.

I'll be back to see how it has grown again in 18-19.

Anyway, it's good to have Arai back.
