Winghills Shirotori Resort is located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture, close to the border with Fukui Prefecture. The resort has a long season with natural snow and is often seen to be competing with nearby Washigatake and White Pia Takasu to be the first to open each season... even if it is with artificial snow. Artificial 'snow mats' are also used to remain open during the summer months. Winghills has been operating since 1990.

Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gujo city are located on the mountains either side of the Tokai Hokuriku Expressway which connects Aichi Prefecture with Toyama Prefecture and the local road Route 156 (Hida Highway) which also runs through the valley. This region is especially popular with people living in or visiting the Kansai regions of western Japan like Nagoya, Gifu, Shiga, Kyoto and Osaka. Train links aren't the most convenient and so this region sees most people arriving by car or bus tours.

Gifu Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the central region of Honshu island, and it one of only a handful of landlocked prefectures. It shares borders with (from the north) Toyama, Nagano, Aichi, Mie, Shiga, Fukui and Ishikawa. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gifu are located in the northern region of the prefecture – in Gujo city, Takayama city, Hida city and Shirakawa village.
