Iizuna Kogen is located on the southern slopes of Mt Iizuna, to the north of Nagano city in the northern region of Nagano Prefecture. The freestyle ski events of the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics were held at Iizuna Kogen. The bobsleigh and luge events of the Olympics were held at the 'Spiral' facility, about 3km to the south-east of Iizuna Kogen. The Iizuna Resort ski hill is about 4km away and the resorts in Myoko (Niigata Prefecture) are to the north.

Unfortunately, it was announced in early January 2020 that the 2019-2020 winter season would be the last winter season for Iizuna Kogen. This ski hill originally opened in 1965. At its peak in 1984, around 230,000 people visited in one winter season. In recent years fewer people have been visiting and the region hasn't got as much snowfall meaning a shorter season. The result being that last year less than 30,000 people visited the resort. Nagano City had been looking for new owners, but nobody rained their hands.

More information about Iizuna Kogen can be found on SnowJapanHistory.com.
