APPI is located in latitude 40° N where world's famous ski resorts such as Austria's Arlberg and USA's Aspen are located. Our ski resort is on the Mt. Maemori (1305m/4281ft) and Mt. Nishimori (1328m/4357ft) in the Hachimantai National Park. Most slopes are facing north side that keeps snow conditions well because of lesser direct sun hitting on slopes during the day.

Also, our well-known Aspirin snow (light and fine snow flakes) makes skiers and snowboarders enjoy riding from early December till early May.

Starting with the longest run of "Yamabato" Run (5500m) for beginners, we proudly have the large scale of 21different terrains that are similar to Europe's and America's resorts for all levels of skiers and snowboarders.

Hotel APPI Grand was designed by Yusaku Kamekura who designed posters for 1964’s Tokyo Olympics. The designer conceived European style hotel for longer stay and aimed to break the image of "mountain area's hotel = log house in the mountain". Hotel APPI Grand is serving and quality atmosphere as if it is a museum.
