    We are taking our first ski trip to Japan in Feb

    Just looking for some help. . . We are heading to Hakaba Valley, I'm unfortunately more likely that not still not going to be able to ski (don't reccommend fracturing your patell and tearing tendons )

    I'm wondering which resorts have gondalas and lifts that you are able to upload and download on

    Much appreciated

    All gondolas.

    Tsugaike doesn't really have anything at the top of the gondola mind you.

    I think the Goryu gondola offers best view and food.

    Happo a close second.

    You can take lift from bottom parking of Kashima Yari, if it is a sunny clear day view of the Kashima-Yari is jaw dropping.

    Goryu gondola is best in general I think. View going up, view up top it is pretty great.
