2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we will gradually be updating the information for every ski resort in Japan.

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until the autumn months and so our process of updating information will be ongoing until November.

Resorts usually open and close around the same time each season - if the 2017-2018 planned season dates are still displayed on this page, they can be used as a good indication of the season length.
