“Akakura Onsen Ski Area” is adjacent to the Akakura Onsen district in Myoko City.There are 17 courses in total (50% for beginners, 40% for intermediates, 10% for advanced) on the spacious slopes at the foot of Mt. Myoko, and you can enjoy skiing on the courses that match your level.Known for its 100% natural snow and one of Japan’s most heavy snowfall areas, high-quality snow powder attracts skiers on non-compacted snow courses.There are many inns, restaurants, and hot springs around the ski resort, and it is also attractive to enjoy a full range of after-skiing.

The slopes are wide and there are many gentle slopes, so even beginners and families can enjoy it with confidence.I’m glad that the lift fee for elementary school students is always 1,000 yen.Furthermore, on the 3rd Sunday of every month, “Ski Children’s Day”, a 1-day lift ticket for elementary school students will be free.
The only ski resort in the Myoko area is open at night, and you can enjoy skiing until 10 pm.Open at night from 5 pm to 10 pm.
