  5. The operators of Mizuho Highland 瑞穂ハイランドスキー場 in Shimane Prefecture went bankrupt in the spring of 2020 and it was not able to open during the 2020-2021 winter season. There was a crowdfunding campaign in spring 2021 to try and help save the ski area. That seems to have raised over 6 million yen. In some good news this week, a civil engineering company based in Hiroshima City has agreed to take over the ski area operation. There are no details about re-opening yet, but hopefully Mizuho Highland might be able to re-open for the 2021-2022 winter season. https://www.snowjapan.c

  9. The Kyukamura 休暇村ゲレンデ section of Mt Norikura Snow Resort Mt.乗鞍スノーリゾート in Matsumoto (Nagano) will not be opening for the 2021-2022 winter season. The Kyukamura area comprises of two pair lifts on one side of the resort. Uncertainty remains about whether the rest of Mt Norikura Snow Resort will be able to open for the 2021-2022 season. A lack of snow and then covid-19 has meant that the last few seasons have been particularly difficult. The resort is currently looking for ways to remain operating. https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/nagano/matsumoto/mt-norikura

  13. The ski area known as Aizu Kogen Takahata 会津高原高畑 has changed name. As of spring 2021, the ski area is now known as 北日光・高畑スキー場. In English that is Kita Nikko Takahata, with Kita Nikko translating as 'northern Nikko'. It's interesting that they have gone from having Aizu in the name to associating with Nikko (city). (The official business name remains Aizu Kogen Takahata). More information on Kita Nikko Takahata here: https://www.snowjapan.com/japan-ski-resorts/fukushima/minami-aizu/kita-nikko-takahata

  15. Family Skijo オース was a ski area located to the east of central Fukui City in what used to be Miyama Town. The full name of the ski area in Japanese was ファミリースキー場オース but it is unclear how the last part of the name should be written in English characters. Perhaps one reason why the name is a mystery is… because the ski area never actually opened. The facility was built in 1994 and was officially abandoned in 2007 but during that period it did not officially open… not even for one day! More details here: Family Skijo, Fukui City

  20. The oldest ski lift at Zao Onsen(蔵王温泉スキー場)in Yamagata is going to get a refresh this year. There has been three versions of the ski lift known as Onsen Number 1 lift, located in the lower Uwanodai area of the resort. The first one opened in 1951. The current 486m lift opened in 1976. The cables and chairs will be all-new, complete with safety bars. The towers will be relocated from the Karamatsu lift, which is being decommissioned. New LED lighting will also be installed in the same area for night skiing. It is hoped that the new lift will be ready by the middle of December

  24. Mutsu-shi Kamafuseyama (むつ市釜臥山スキー場) is the most northerly ski area on the main island of Honshu, located by the coast line in Mutsu City, Aomori Prefecture. The ski area opened in 1972 and has one pair lift and one single lift, but that will change in time for next winter as the top single lift is being replaced by a new pair lift. The new lift is going to be a bit longer than the current 602m lift. It will start slightly lower and go further up the mountain, opening up some new terrain at the ski area. Work is underway and the new lift should be ready in time for the 2021-2022
