Japan ski resort news: Muikamachi Hakkaisan (Niigata)

< News index

20th December 2018

Muikamachi Hakkaisan
Niigata Prefecture


Muikamachi Hakkaisan is located on the western slopes of Mt Hakkai in the northern region of Minamiuonuma city in Niigata Prefecture.

During the 2018-2019 season Muikamachi Hakkaisan will celebrate its 35th Anniversary. To celebrate, on days that include the number 3 and 5, a one day lift ticket with a 1,000 yen voucher to use at the resort will cost 3,500 yen.

But the news that we find most interesting is that this season the Number 2 lift will operate daily - in recent seasons it had only opened on weekends and holidays (which was always somewhat disappointing)

Muimamachi Hakkaisan is popular for long and challenging mogul courses and also some smoother intermediate cruising style courses.The main 81 person capacity Ropeway which regularly goes from close-to base to the top of the resort moves at quite some speed and is a sight to see - it looks like it is playing on fast-forward!

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.
