Kamoidake is located on the eastern slopes of the mountain of the same name in the northern part of Utashinai city in central Hokkaido. There are two main areas and bases to this ski hill - West and East. The courses are serviced by three pair lifts and one T-bar lift.

Unfortunately, it closed for business - for good, it would seem - at the end of February 2019. (Business difficulties, etc). A petition signed by about 2500 people was submitted to Utashinai city office hoping for a revival, though as of mid-October 2019 we cannot find any updated news on a possible re-opening. (And if anyone knows anything different, please do get in touch and let us know).

Hokkaido is the second largest island of Japan and also the largest and northernmost prefecture (though it is not usually referred to as a prefecture). It has coastlines on the Sea of Japan, the Sea of Okhotsk and also the Pacific Ocean. Sapporo is the capital city of Hokkaido and was host to the 1972 Winter Olympics. Hokkaido is home to the largest number of ski hills in Japan. While the majority of them are very small, some of the larger ski and snowboard resorts in Hokkaido - mostly found in regions to the west and east of Sapporo - are amongst the most famous in Japan.
