Visitor Reviews of Appi Kogen

JustinR from Australia writes:

Appi Kogen, for us over the last four days, has been great. We've had some terrific powder skiing of various depths. Yesterday was knee to waist deep off the side of the piste. We stayed at this great pension called Mutti run by Kayoko, a seriously wonderful host. Lift queues didn't exist this week (Jan 13th). Give Appi a go whilst you're exploring Japanese skiing and its vast array of resorts.
