Yamabiko no oka (Yamanouchi Town, Nagano)
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 did not operated during the 2018-2019 season and will not be opening this 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 2018-2019 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
The 2018-2019 winter season is approaching! Hurray!
At the time of writing more than 60% of the ski hills in Japan have still not updated their own information for the upcoming season. We are continuing to manually update the information on these ski resort pages of SnowJapan but for the moment things are unavoidably a mix of old and new. In most cases ski resorts open and close around the same dates each season, so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 2017-2018 season, that is usually a good indication of what to expect this time round.
