Dynaland is located in the northern area of Gujo city in the central region of Gifu Prefecture. The resort is on the eastern slopes of Mt Dainichi, is part of the Ryohaku mountain range. The resort has been operating since 1972 though not originally under the name Dynaland. It is lift and course-connected with the Takasu Snow Park resort and a shared lift ticket is available. Along with Takasu Snow Park, the connected area boasts 32 courses and 43km of ski courses.

Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gujo city are located on the mountains either side of the Tokai Hokuriku Expressway which connects Aichi Prefecture with Toyama Prefecture and the local road Route 156 (Hida Highway) which also runs through the valley. This region is especially popular with people living in or visiting the Kansai regions of western Japan like Nagoya, Gifu, Shiga, Kyoto and Osaka. Train links aren't the most convenient and so this region sees most people arriving by car or bus tours.

Gifu Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the central region of Honshu island, and it one of only a handful of landlocked prefectures. It shares borders with (from the north) Toyama, Nagano, Aichi, Mie, Shiga, Fukui and Ishikawa. Most of the ski and snowboard resorts in Gifu are located in the northern region of the prefecture – in Gujo city, Takayama city, Hida city and Shirakawa village.

As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we will gradually be updating the information for every ski resort in Japan.

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until the autumn months and so our process of updating information will be ongoing until November.

Resorts usually open and close around the same time each season - if the 2017-2018 planned season dates are still displayed on this page, they can be used as a good indication of the season length.
