Yamabiko no oka (Yamanouchi Town, Nagano)
Yamabiko no oka is a small ski hill located on the eastern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture.
Yamabiko no oka did not operated during the 2018-2019 season and will not be opening this season.
In recent seasons, Yamabiko-no-oka was one of five connected ski hills on the slopes of Mt Kosha that were branded as 'Mt Kosha' and joint lift tickets were available. However, since last year there have been some various changes and for the 2018-2019 season the big ‘Mt Kosha’ concept seems to have fractured further.
X-JAM Takaifuji and Yomase Onsen now offer a joint ticket; Kita Shinshu Kijimadaira and Makinoiri Snow Park are both operating independently.
In the regions surrounding Mt Kosha, Myoko and Madarao Kogen are to the west, Nozawa Onsen is to the north and Shiga Kogen is to south west.
