Asama 2000 Park is located in the Takamine Kogen area of Komoro city, close to Mt Asama in Nagano Prefecture. The name - sort of - comes from the elevation of the resort, from 1880m to 2050m. At this height snow conditions are often very good and there are some fine views of the surrounding mountains as well. Interestingly, the slopes of Asama 2000 Park are actually within Gunma Prefecture but the official address is in Komoro city. I wonder who they pay taxes to...

Access to the ski hill is only from the south as the roads to the north (Gunma) are blocked off in winter. A new base building is being built which means that the Number 2 car park will not be available for the 2018-2019 season, but they should have that covered with other car parks.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.

At the time of writing more than 40% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season - even some of the larger ones! We are continuing to manually check and update information within SnowJapan on a daily basis, but for the moment things remain a mix of new and old. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.
