Gala Yuzawa Snow Resort

This incredibly convenient ski resort, only 75 minutes by Shinkansen from Tokyo, has a ski center which also doubles as a train station;.a great place to get in some skiing and snowboarding without the need to break the bank. Specializing in day ski trips, it has a full array of facilities including the rental corner, changing rooms, and restaurants. Once you are ready to hit the slopes, just ride the large gondola on the second floor of the station to be taken to the slopes 800 meters up. With a rich variety of courses, these slopes are sure to satisfy people of any level from beginner to advanced. There is also a souvenir shop and hot spring bath for visitors inside the Ski Center; something to look forward to after a day of skiing and snowboarding. It is a ski resort we particularly recommend to anyone who would like to carry light but still be able to experience some serious skiing.
