2019-2020 SEASON INFO
The ski resort information currently shown on SnowJapan is from the 2018-2019 season. Over the summer and autumn months we will be checking and then updating information. Everything will be updated online in time for the 2019-2020 winter season. Please note that planned ski resort opening dates are often very similar every year, so the dates from the 2018-2019 season can be taken as a good idea of what to expect next season.
