Tateyama Sanroku (Toyama City, Toyama)

Tateyama Sanroku
立山山麓 (富山県 富山市)
Planned season: Saturday 16th December 2017 until Wednesday 21st March 2018

Tateyama Sanroku, located to the south east of Toyama city in Toyama Prefecture, is officially made up of two connected areas - Raicho Valley Area and Gokurakuzaka Area - with a ticket that also includes the nearby Awasuno available. Awasuno is not actually lift or course connected to the others. It seems that there is somewhat complicated background to the operation of these ski hills - even by Japan standards!

Note that for the 2017-2018 season the Gondola will not be operation - official reason appears to be 'technical issues'. Even so, all of the course areas will remain skiable.

Toyama Prefecture is in the Hokuriku region of central Japan, facing the Sea of Japan. Toyama is bordered by Ishikawa to the west, Gifu to the south and Nagano and Niigata to the east. The northern region is all Sea of Japan coastline. While the eastern region of Toyama along the border with Nagano Prefecture is home to impressive North Alps mountains, most of the mostly small ski hills within Toyama are actually located in the western region around Nanto.
