Yuzawa (Yuzawa City, Akita)
Yuzawa is a small ski hill located just to the east of central Yuzawa city in the southern region of Akita Prefecture. Not to be confused with the town and ski resorts in Yuzawa town in Niigata Prefecture. After just the rope tow operating for the 2016-2017 season, this ski hill has now closed and is no longer operating.
Akita Prefecture is located in the Tohoku region of northern Honshu. Akita faces the Sea of Japan in the west and is bordered by Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi and Yamagata prefectures from north to south. The region has cold winters and there are numerous ski hills located around the prefecture, though most of them are small scale with just one or two lifts.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we are gradually updating the information on these pages (for every ski resort in Japan).
Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until late autumn. Our process of updating information will be ongoing right through until the end of November. In the meantime, ski resorts usually open and close around the same dates each year - so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 18-18 season, they can be used as a good indication of the upcoming season.
