Unazuki Snow Park is a very small small ski hill located close to the centre of the Unazuki Onsen area of Kurobe city in the north-eastern region of Toyama Prefecture, close to the border with Niigata and Nagano Prefectures. It originally opened in 1956. A lift takes visitors from the onsen area to the slopes and back.

Toyama Prefecture is in the Hokuriku region of central Japan, facing the Sea of Japan. Toyama is bordered by Ishikawa to the west, Gifu to the south and Nagano and Niigata to the east. The northern region is all Sea of Japan coastline. While the eastern region of Toyama along the border with Nagano Prefecture is home to impressive North Alps mountains, most of the mostly small ski hills within Toyama are actually located in the western region around Nanto.

2018-2019 SKI RESORT INFORMATION UPDATES
As the 2018-2019 winter season approaches, we are gradually updating the information on these pages (for every ski resort in Japan).

Many ski resorts in Japan do not update their own information until late autumn. Our process of updating information will be ongoing right through until the end of November. In the meantime, ski resorts usually open and close around the same dates each year - so even if the planned season dates shown on this page are still from the 18-18 season, they can be used as a good indication of the upcoming season.
