Chuo-do Ina Ski Resortis located in Ina city close by the Chuo Expressway road in Nagano Prefecture. This region does not get the most snow but snow making machines help nature at this resort. Chuo-do Ina first opened in 1988. The ski hills in this region are within easy reach of the Aichi, Gifu and Shizuoka areas.

Nagano Prefecture is located in the Chubu region of the main island of Honshu. Most of the Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps are located within Nagano (along with neighbouring prefectures). Nagano has the second highest number of ski and snowboard resorts in all of Japan and they are spread around the whole prefecture. Nagano city and many of the major ski resorts are located in the northern region.
