Gabriel from Japan writes:

Sprawling resort known for 1 long season (mid November to mid may), 2 plentiful side-country and backcountry off-piste pow action, 3 easy access from Tokyo. Not much for super beginners but if you can stop and turn there a lots of easy long runs too. Great place for pow and tree fiends. Relatively low avalanche risk (people die every year but usually they get lost or fall in a tree hole).
