Welcome to Japan!
You have to take the ropelift to the snowland. The lift costs you ￥2,000 per person. It's a little bit expensive. I think that your kid can play with snow around the entrance of the roplift, if you come to Japan in Feb. It's not official place, however there are enough snow. But not sure. You know it depends on the weather. Anyway, You need to take the roplift, if your kid want to play the sled. I hope you and your family will enjoy the trip.
