Ryuoo Ski Park is located in Yamanouchi town in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture, in an area that is traditionally known as Kita Shiga.

The ski area features a 166-person Ropeway, which connects the lower Valley area with the top Skyland area. The Skyland area features some gentle slopes that are suitable for beginners. The steep Kiotoshi runs from the top Ropeway station are popular for a good challenge. The name may be Ryuoo 'Ski' Park, but it seems particularly popular with snowboarders and is often busy on weekdays with university student trips.

Ryuoo Ski Park has been operating since 1961. The smaller Kita Shiga Komaruyama is close by. The ski areas of Mt Kosha are to the west, and the Shiga Kogen region is to the southeast of Ryuoo Ski Park.
