GALA Yuzawa resort review (Yuzawa Town, Niigata)

GALA Yuzawa
Yuzawa Town, Niigata
Submitted by xxx on 3rd January 2019
The snow has arrived!
It may have been late arriving but end of the year Yuzawa has been dumped on. Lots of snow over the period of a few days are making for some excellent New Year snow conditions.

GALA wasn't as busy as I feared it might be. And that of course is nothing to complain about. Maybe a few people were nursing sore heads!

I really like GALA when it's not busy. The snow is often really good and I like the courses. Wish the top lift was faster, but that's a small itch.

My tip for GALA - go weekdays.

Hope they can get the South Area open soon.
