The ski resort of Lotte Arai Resort in Ryozenji, Myoko City, Niigata Prefecture, opened the earliest in the Joetsu region on the 15th.
Due to the cold weather from the previous day, the altitude is 950m, and the snowfall at the Zendana station near the summit is about 145cm. Two courses for intermediate and advanced players, 1,400m, can be run. At the gondola platform, seven skiers and snowboarders lined up at 8 am when it opened.
Skiers from inside and outside the prefecture
“I found out on SNS when it opened, and I came early, but I was surprised that there were no people.”
“Pounding, I can’t help but want to slip fast”
“The most fun is powder snow. It’s my first ski resort, so I want to enjoy it to the fullest,” I was excited.

“The powder was really good. I’m glad I got it in this chill.”
“I want to have fun once or twice a week”
“It feels good. I came (in Myoko) from Sunday and finally slipped,” he said.
According to the ski resort, it was used by about 100 people in the morning on the 15th. It is unusual to have a lot of snow on the first day of the opening.
It is expected that we will be able to glide to the intermediate station of the gondola this weekend. At ski resorts, there are places where the snow pressure is insufficient, so we encourage you to enjoy it in the regulated area.
