Akakura Onsen Ski Resort | Ski Akakura

Akakura Onsen began it’s life as a traditional hot spring mountain retreat before it began to install ski lifts above the village in the mid 20th Century. Stunning Mt. Myoko, sometimes referred to as “Echigo Fuji” (reflecting the old name for the region) towers over Akakura Village and Akakura Onsen Ski Resort. The Myoko Akakura Ski Area boast 14 lifts with 17 runs of various grades.

Akakura Onsen Ski Resort

akakura onsen ski resort

There are three main areas to the Akakura Onsen resort – Yodel, Kumado and Ginrei. Akakura Onsen is course-connected with the neighbouring Akakura Kanko Resort (with 32 diverse runs in total) and a joint lift ticket for both is available. ‘Nighta’ runs are available every night for most of the season. From beginners to experts everyone can discover endless skiing possibilities, although the majority of runs are more designed for beginner-intermediates. Below the resort a grand panorama spreads out, offering beautiful views of Lake Nojiri and in the distance – the Sea of Japan. As one might expect of Myoko, known for its heavy snowfall, there are plenty of chances to find good powder.
