Kagura Ski Resort, Yuzawa-machi

4.3
#2 of 130 in Parks in Niigata Prefecture
Glide down a 6,000 m (19,685 ft) run surrounded by crisp white peeks at Kagura Ski Resort. Over 22 modern ski lifts provide an enjoyable and exciting ski experience, suitable for both beginners and intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Off-piste and backcountry sites offer plenty of opportunities for the highly experienced visitors and adrenaline junkies. Minimal elevation of 620 m (2034 ft) ensures plenty of snow even in the spring, while the vista from highest point at 1,845 m (6,053 ft) wows both amateur and professional shutterbugs. Onsite rental outlets provide equipment to snow sports fans arriving without their own gear.

  • From the parking lot to lift, guests can enjoy a variety of courses. High altitude is good and stable, a popular run.

  • Snow in the atomosphere. Many seasonal ski doing in earnest, it was just a good person. I'm exhausted just in the bumpy slope.

  • Best resort I've visited on Honshu yet! Plenty of back country, both accessible from the lifts and via a hike. Good rental options. Plenty of pistes for beginners. Good parks by Japanese standards. Don't bother with Gala or Naeba which are both more crowded and are lower altitude so have worse snow.
  • Great ski area, much better than GALA (which is way too crowded). This is the first place I snow boarded, I bought the basic package at the snow board school. The instructors were very good, but they only speak Japanese. Even if you don't speak Japanese, they will still be able to help you. There is a bus that leaves from the train station. Most of the staff only speak Japanese, but are very nice, and will try to help you even if you cannot speak English.
  • Great snow, Wider and not crowded ski slops and kids free lift ticket. I don't care of poor and expensive restaurant menu.
  • 15 mins away by bus ¥380 adult ¥100 for ski bag or large baggage from Echigoyuzawa train station to mitsumata ropeway. It is very big ski resort powder is Kagura very true. But the top lifts close at 14:00 other lifts from kagura area close at 15:30. Other lifts near the base close at 16:15
  • A huge ski resort. You can access to two station: MITSUMATA and TASHIRO. In my opinion Tashiro is better than Mitsumata because it has more ski courses for beginners. But the restraunt in Mistsumata is better.
