If you love skiing and have children I highly recommend spending your holidays here.
Different levels of skiing lessons (from 4 years old) or snowboarding lessons (from 8 years old) are inclusive and are offered daily, in the mornings and in the afternoons.
They are held by international qualified instructors who all speak English. Private ski lessons can also be taken at an extra charge.
I would suggest you bring along as much ski wear and equipment as possible, as renting it can become a very costly side expense.
Here are some figures to give you an idea:
Adult leisure ski rental (skis, poles, boots) approx. 5,000yen/day.
Child ski rental (skis, poles, boots) approx. 4,000yen/day.
Adult snowboard rental (snowboard, boots) approx. 5,600yen/day.
Adults pants and jacket 3,500yen/day.
Kids’ pants and jacket 2,500yen/day.
Apart from the Mini and Junior Club there is also a Petit Club for very young children between 2-3 years old. Various activities (indoor, outdoor and pool) are organized by this club, which is open from 8:00 – 20:00. The GOs were extremely patient and enthusiastic and did great job keeping the little ones entertained.
The buffet offers a big variety, however I can’t say there were any highlights. Overall we always all found something we liked to eat.
The size of the rooms was fine. The size of the bathrooms not so fine. They were really tiny and could do with an upgrade. Ask for 2 futons on top of each other, if you are sleeping on the floor in the tatami room.
Most important of all though is the snow. It is simply fabulous. Powder snow as soft as you can imagine! I have never experienced snow any better than this. Furthermore the slopes are spacious and not crowded and there was ample space to be able to ski, relax and enjoy the scenery.
Would I go again?
No hesitation at all. Absolutely.

And after all that skiing, revival is guaranteed, with the choice between Ofuro, traditional Japanese hot baths, and Canadian outdoor baths.
