Banshogahara is a small ski hill located in the south-west region of Ueda city in Nagano Prefecture.

Unfortunately, the strong typhoon on 12th-13th October 2019 caused considerable damage and Banshogahara will not be opening for the 2019-2020 winter season. Let's hope they sort things out in time for 2020-2021.

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.
