The slopes are located around 1,500 meters above sea level, with a total of 10 courses.（Beginner 40%, Intermediate 30%, Upper 30%）Enjoy a run in skiing of up to 4.5 kilometers. It is also connected to the neighboring Akakura Onsen ski resort, and can be accessed by purchasing a common ticket for both ski resorts.
For advanced skiers, we recommend the Champion B Course, which offers views from Lake Nojiri to the Sea of Japan.This is a full-fledged long course, so long that certified competitions are held here. For beginners and families, the hotel beginner course along the parking lot is perfect. This is where you practice to get used to skiing.
Furthermore, for children who are not yet ready to make their debut on the slopes, the “Chibi-Ko Hiroba” surrounded by nets is recommended. Visitors can enjoy making snowmen and sledding. When you get tired of playing, you can take a break in the heated kids’ room where you can lie down.
