Mount Racey is located on the western slopes of Mt Reisui in the west area of Yubari City, in the region of Hokkaido to the east of Sapporo and Chitose. It is one of the most modern of the larger ski areas found on Hokkaido. One of the four ungroomed 'nature zones' boasts a 45-degree slope. This particular region doesn't usually get as much snow as other popular areas in Hokkaido, but Mount Racey has snowmaking machines to help things along when needed.

Mount Racey was not open during the 2020-2021 season. The good news is that Mount Racey will be opening for the 2021-2022 winter season. The Gondola and two quad lifts will be operating.

Fun fact: Yubari city is famous for melons. They sell for ludicrously large amounts of money at auction. Sadly, they are not in season when there's snow... but look out for lots of melon-themed souvenirs!
