Ontake 2240 is located on the south eastern slopes of Mt Ontake in Otaki village, in the western region of Nagano Prefecture. The top of the resort is at an elevation of 2240m, hence the name. It first opened as just Ontake in 1961, changing the name to Ontake 2240 in 2007. This resort had to temporarily close during 2014 due to volcanic activity on Mt Ontake, but it is now back open.

For the 2018-2019 season, there is just one entry ticket available – the ‘One Day Passport’. This ticket gives you access to the ski lifts as well as an eat-all-you-want buffet lunch and also entry into the public baths.

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.
