Makinoiri Snow Park (Nakano City, Nagano)
Makinoiri Snow Park the located on the northern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town, in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture.
It has had a bit of an on-off and confusing status in recent years! Makinoiri Snow Park was to be part of the branded 'Mt Kosha' plan that included five ski hills and a joint lift ticket. But then it was closed for a handful of seasons. And then it part re-opened for the 2016-2017 season with two lifts were operating!
The big ‘Mt Kosha’ concept seems to have fractured: Makinoiri Snow Park and Kita Shinshu Kijimadaira are now both operating independently; X-JAM Takaifuji and Yomase Onsen offer a joint ticket; and Yamabiko-no-oka is apparently closed for 2017-2018.
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.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we will gradually be updating the information for every ski resort in Japan.
Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until the autumn months and so our process of updating information will be ongoing until November.
Resorts usually open and close around the same time each season - if the 2017-2018 planned season dates are still displayed on this page, they can be used as a good indication of the season length.
