Great For Beginners and Snow Play

Very mellow slopes for beginners
We’re glad we had a look at Yuzawa Kogen because we could see its big attraction for beginners and families seeking snow play. However as powder hounds, it didn’t excite us particularly. The off-piste looked tempting but it would have been difficult to do discretely, and waiting for the ropeway was a bit painful. And some of the runs don’t head fall-line so you’re either on a cat track like run, or skiing on camber.

We visited on a weekend, and the majority of the top area was closed for ski racing, leaving only a small slither of a slope for the public. It’s a small enough ski resort already without closing most of it off.

We were happy to escape across to Gala and Ishiuchi where there were some nice fall line runs. See our video here
