What is YUZAWA SNOW LINK?

YUZAWA SNOW LINK is a grouping of three individual ski and snowboard resorts located in Yuzawa town and Minamiuonuma city, Niigata Prefecture. The three resorts - Yuzawa Kogen, GALA Yuzawa and Ishiuchi Maruyama - together offer one of the largest ski areas in the Kanto region of Japan.

The three ski resorts are physically connected on-mountain by Ropeway and lift, and a joint lift pass is available that allows access to the whole area - you can easily go from one to the other during your day on the slopes. Beginners and families will enjoy learning to ski or snowboard on a selection of gentle slopes, or even just the experience of playing in the snow (‘yuki-asobi’) and enjoy the beautiful winter wonderland scenery. More experienced skiers and snowboarders are rewarded with often excellent snow conditions, a wide selection courses, mogul runs, un-groomed courses and other challenges. While the resorts are lift-linked together at the top, convenient shuttle buses also operate regularly between the base areas of each resort.
