We skied the Maeyama side - many wonderful runs, especially the blacks, nice really deep powder. Three or four great mogul runs. We really liked the hooded lifts. The central skiing area has some nice wide groomed areas for carving.
The minshuku in the Shin area are rather run down. It is worth going to the Akakura Onsen area instead to stay. There are good restaurants in the Chuo area of the gelende.
