About SnowJapan News

Ski resort news from around Japan

This brand-new section of SnowJapan will feature news about ski resort developments across Japan, along with other interesting news about the snow world here.

As we carefully check and update our ski resort information pages each season, we often add interesting bits of news to the introductory text sections, and feel that some of that information would be of interest to a wider audience.

We're going to start slow but steady, and plan to keep on building and developing the section over the years. We know that many of you are interested not only in the current snow conditions in Japan, but also in the ski resorts themselves... so we are going to endeavor to get that fresh information out to you.

Your input is welcome, too: if you know of any Japan ski and snowboard resort news that you think would be of interest to SnowJapan readers, please contact us at editor@snowjapan.com.

  SnowJapan will receive no payment for the information published in SnowJapan News.
  The decision on what information is to be included in SnowJapan News is entirely at the discretion of the editors of SnowJapan.com.
