Daisen White Resort is located in Daisen town to the south west of Yonago city in Tottori Prefecture. It is on the northern slopes of Mt Daisen - a volcanic mountain with an elevation of over 1700m, making it the highest in the Chugoku region. It overlooks the sea with some fine views on a clear day. There is a cross-country course.

This ski area has four main areas - Kokusai, Uenohara, Nakanohara and Gouenzan and there has been skiing here since 1956. The 2019-2020 season marked the 10th Anniversary of it being known as 'Daisen White Resort' and the resort still keeps those four named areas.

However there is a scaling back of operations for the 2020-2021 season. Only 7 of the 14 lifts will be operating and a fair section of courses/terrain will be closed, including all of the Uenohara area. Difficulties resulting from a lack of snowfall last season and covid-19 issues currently making things difficult are being given as the reason. The variety of lift tickets available has also been reduced.

There are three other separate ski hills on the slopes of Mt Daisen - Daisen Masumizu Kogen, Oku Daizen and Kagamiganaru.

Tottori Prefecture is located in the Chugoku region of western Japan. There are a number of ski and snowboard resorts in the Tottori, with most gathered around Mt Daisen in the western region of the prefecture.
