Yamabiko no oka is a small ski hill located on the eastern slopes of Mt Kosha in Yamanouchi town in the north-eastern region of Nagano Prefecture.

Yamabiko no oka is apparently not operating for the 2017-2018 season.

In recent seasons, Yamabiko-no-oka was one of five connected ski hills on the slopes of Mt Kosha that were branded as 'Mt Kosha' and joint lift tickets were available. However, since last year there have been some various changes and for the 2017-2018 season the big ‘Mt Kosha’ concept seems to have fractured further.
X-JAM Takaifuji and Yomase Onsen now offer a joint ticket; Kita Shinshu Kijimadaira and Makinoiri Snow Park are both operating independently.

In the regions surrounding Mt Kosha, Myoko and Madarao Kogen are to the west, Nozawa Onsen is to the north and Shiga Kogen is to south west.

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.
