Ski Park Kanbiki
Hiroshima Prefecture

Goodbye Ski Park Kanbiki

Ski Park Kanbiki is a ski hill located on the northern slopes of Mt Kanbiki in Kita Hiroshima town (Hiroshima Prefecture).

Unfortunately, in October 2018 it was announced that it has closed after about 50 years of operation.

The word 廃業 was used in the official press release... and so it sounds pretty permanent

Less than an hour from Hiroshima city and offering natural snow, no doubt some skiers and snowboarders in that region will be upset to hear this news. The company that operated the ski hill blamed the declining number of skiers as the main reason - apparently, since 2014 total revenues had declined by over 60%.

Ski Park Kanbiki had a steepest slope of 30 degrees and the seven courses were serviced by one triple lift and one pair lift.

We will keep the information page on SnowJapan for a while so if you are interested in finding out more you can find details below.

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. Thank you.
