Family Snow Park Bandai X2 is located on the eastern slopes of Mt Bandai in Inwashiro town, Fukushima Prefecture. This ski hill was previously known as Bandai Kokusai. Bandai Kokusai was closed for three seasons, re-opening as Family Snow Park Bandai X2. The gentle slopes are suitable for families and children.
In December 2020, the ski area announced that it would be closed during the 2020-2021 winter season... citing coronavirus as the reason. Hopefully it will be back open for 2021-2022.
Fukushima Prefecture is composed of three main regions - the Hamadori region to the east (including the Pacific Ocean coastline), the Nakadori region (the central area) and the Aizu region (the Western mountainous region). Many of the ski and snowboard resorts in the prefecture are found on or near Mt Bandai and Mt Adatara to the north of Lake Inawashiro. Most of the others can be found scattered across the western region of the Aizu region or to the south-west of Lake Inawashiro.
