Appi Kogen Ski Resort

The slopes at Appi Kogen are on a grand scale, with a total of 21 courses and top-quality snow. Situated at 40 degrees latitude, this ski resort boasts a truly superior snow quality, and the rich environment and north-facing slopes allow them to remain open until early May. While the 5.5km downhill course from the summit is one even beginners can try out, there’s also a non-compacted 2km run, which becomes one long powder run on fresh snow days, and an exciting mogul course on days without snowfall. Tree runs are also possible in the Nishimori Area and Sailer Area. *Shirakaba Slope and Lift No.2 Area will use artificial snow. *The multi-resort lift pass is a lift pass that includes gondola rides. Regular lift passes with no gondola rides are also available at a lower price.
