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.
