Ikenotaira Onsen Alpine Black Ski Resort is located at the foot of Mt. From this season, the name has been changed to “Ikenotaira Onsen Alpine ski resort” instead of Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort.

The most distinctive feature of the mountain is the uniquely wide slopes that take full advantage of the foothills. The wide slopes provide safe and comfortable skiing for everyone from small children to the elderly. Another attraction is the 4 km long ride from the speedy medium slope to the gentle slope through the forest.
This season, a new unpressurized tree run course was built, and the snow park “MAVERICKS PARK” was moved along the main lifts so that a wider range of people can enjoy the course.
Overall, many of the courses are suitable for beginners and intermediate skiers, and are popular with families. The open atmosphere with the view of Lake Nojiri with Mt. Myoko in the background will surely refresh you both physically and mentally.
There are also many hot springs in the vicinity to soothe your tired body.
