Daisen White Resort is located in Daisen town to the south west of Yonago city in Tottori Prefecture. It is on the northern slopes of Mt Daisen - a volcanic mountain with an elevation of over 1700m, making it the highest in the Chugoku region. It overlooks the sea with some fine views on a clear day. There is a cross-country course.

This resort has four main areas - Kokusai, Uenohara, Nakanohara and Gouenzan and there has been skiing here since 1956. The 2019-2020 season marks the 10th Anniversary of it being known as 'Daisen White Resort' and the resort still keeps those four named areas.

There are three other separate ski hills on the slopes of Mt Daisen - Daisen Masumizu Kogen, Oku Daizen and Kagamiganaru.

For the 2017-2018 season there were some ski lift changes in the Kokusai area of Daisen White Resort - a few taken out and changed. There are now a total of 10 pair lifts and 4 triple lifts as well as two access pair lifts that are used to get to the slopes. There is also now a new connecting course from the Kokusai area to the Uenohara area.

Tottori Prefecture is located in the Chugoku region of western Japan. There are a number of ski and snowboard resorts in the Tottori, with most gathered around Mt Daisen in the western region of the prefecture.
