We stayed for 2 weeks in early March in a one bedroom apartment. Our apartment was located on the 2nd floor facing away from the ski lifts and was oppposite the Yuki Bar. There was some noise from the bar on the weekends, but as we were staying towards the end of the ski season this didn't cause too much of an issue, although it may could be one during peak season.
The one bedroom units are well apointed with dishwasher, full size fridge, 2 burner gas hot plate and dual microvave/oven. There was also a multi region DVD player and huge plasma TV mounted on the wall and ipod docking station. Full size washing machine and dryer was also handy.
Cable internet was available for purchase in 24 hour blocks.
Ski Japan also have staff in the reception area from 8.00 to 8.00 who are onhand to answer any questions.
The ski locker in located on the ground floor which makes for easy access to the lifts either via the NBS ski school or out the front door. This was well worth the extra cost, knowing that we did not have to walk down icy streets in ski boots lugging skiis! The shuttle bus also stops not too far away for those wishing to go to Hanazono or the Welcome Centre to catch the bus between resorts.
The Alpen Ridge is also well located for restaurants being in the middle of the village, and not too far from the Seico Mart.
