This ski hill is a bit of a trek to get to. It's in Uomuma which is north of Yuzawa and Minamiuonuma and realistically about 70-80 minutes drive from that area. But I thought I'd give it a go as I had been the previous autumn.
Ski hill itself is pretty small and there's really not much to talk about. The snow was really great when we went, with 20cm overnight. Light and fluffy. And hardly anyone else around at all. It was really quiet (which is how I personally like a ski resort!)
Surroundings are beautiful. Take a camera and try to go on a fine day.
I wouldn't recommend making a big trip to go here, but if you are in the region and fancy a chance from the usual places... check it out.
