This was our first family trip overseas and we weren't sure what to expect. We were very pleased with our choice of snow field and Hotel. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left we were greeted by friendly smiling (english speaking) staff who always made us feel at home and helped us with our questions. We stayed as 2 adults and 2 teenage kids in a family room which was spacious and worked out very well. Breakfast was nice and the staff put on earlier times when it was necessary for us to get to our days outings on time. The Sakka beginner slopes were a very short walk and those slopes were the perfect ones for us Beginners- snow clearly tons better than what we remember from Australian Winters!
Dinner at Luna was great (we had several) and always started at the bar for a cold beer or a Chu-Hi. There is a very functional drying room and a rec room downstairs. Numerous DVDs were available for the kids to bring back to the room and watch for free. The kids particularly liked uploading things with the free WiFi.
Down town Happo was a short shuttle bus or taxi ride- but we often walked if we wanted to eat out and other eating options are very close (uphill on way home to work off dessert).
Our day at the Snow Monkeys was a great time and a good rest for weary muscles.
We used Chuo taxis for our transfers to Nagano- this worked well.
So all in all- this was the perfect place for us and we wouldn't have changed anything- Highly Recommended - particularly for families and beginner skiers.
