コストパフォーマンスの高いスキー宿

"男性1名での利用、初めてのスキーヤーズベッド…若干の不安を抱きながら宿泊してみました。 同室の方は2名、2段ベッド×2の部屋を3名での利用でしたが結論から申し上げると良かったです。 メシは美味い!風呂も快適 布団もフカフカ!部屋は狭いけれど清潔で、遥か昔の寮生活を思い出し楽しかった。共有スペースが2ヶ所(談話室?とミーティングルーム?)あったので眠る時以外はそこで持ち込みのワインやコーヒーでのんびり過ごせました。 …とは言え相部屋ですから気は遣います。家族や仲間4人で1部屋借りれたらきっともっと楽しいでしょう。朝食は6:30からですからチェックアウトの日でも余裕で8時スタートの奥志賀ゴンドラに乗り込めます。1人でガンガン滑りたい方、仲間とリーズナブルに楽しみたい方にはオススメです。 ..."…"
