We only booked one night at the Wald Berg with the intention of doing the night site seeing of the snow monsters. Unfortunately it was raining and high winds so the gondolas were closed that evening. We quickly changed our plans and decided to spend all of the following day and take a late flight out of Sendai instead.
While it felt a little like a time travel with the dated interior decorating, we could not have been more pleased with the service we received while at Wald Berg.
While speaking no Japanese, and the staff speaking little to no English, we were able to get ski rentals, rides to and from the bus terminal and amazing meals that were included. It was a nice change from the city travel we had much of the trip.
Next time we'd certainly stay longer to take advantage of the ski in ski out!More
