Went with the kids. The hotel offers some classes for us to learn skiing or snowboarding. Stayed couple nights. Great experience. Would go to the same hotel if we ever go to Arai.

This was a great stay. The property was a bit dated and the rooms were older but the amenities were great. It’s not necessarily ski in ski out as you have to walk a bit to the lift. But overall it was a great experience. The hotel had a lot of foreigners that feigned absolute ignorance about the rules of the hotel. What was disappointing at breakfast you see the server telling you use gloves and mask when going to the buffet, and then you see a foreigner completely ignore those rules and uses his grubby hands to touch all the bread to choose one at the middle and toast it. Otherwise the stay was enjoyable.
