Great staff. Close to the ski lifts. Very enjoyable. Recommend ordering the hotel dinners ahead of time unless you plan on dining in Yamagata (30 min drive).

Great staff. Delicious food. Shuttle schedule does not coordinate with train schedule. Even the public bus schedule. We came in from Sendai and just missed public bus. Had to wait an hour. For the shuttle bus it was almost a 2 hour wait.
