Karigahara is a small ski area located just a few kilometres from the central area of Katsuyama city in the north eastern region of Fukui Prefecture. The larger Ski Jam Katsuyama resort is close by.

Unfortunately, Karigahara was unable to open for one day during the 2019-2020 season and in February 2020 it was announced that it was permanently closing. More information on Karigahara can be found on the SnowJapanHistory website here.

Fukui Prefecture is in the Chubu region of central Japan, facing the Sea of Japan. It borders Ishikawa to the north, Gifu to the east and Kyoto and Shiga to the south. Most of the ski hills in Fukui Prefecture are found in the north eastern region to the east of the capital, Fukui city.
