I did skiing at Grand Hirafu this Christmas. Here are the pros and cons:
PROS:
1. Lots of fresh snow in December - have never seen this much snow ever!
2. Snow is as soft as talcum powder - it is just too soft. Awesome!
3. Good accomodation options available nearby

CONS:
1. Beginner slope lift (lift#1) does not have a bar to hold on to. You don't have support on the lift. Slightly risky
2. Even the beginner slope has some 30m 'intermediate' patches and they come without warning.
3. Sign boards can be better especially at diversions.

Fresh powder every single day. Amazing. great off-pisting. Any snowboarders dream. AND it wasn't even the best time of the season.

I will definitely be coming back here for more...
