Banshogahara (Ueda City, Nagano)
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.
