Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort | Ski Joetsu-Myoko

Located on the central side of Mount Myoko, Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort offers long, wooded trails and wide, gentle slopes. Visitors to the resort can enjoy the snow to your heart’s content in the two skiing areas, each with their own unique charm.

Ikenotaira Onsen Ski Resort

Surrounded by forests of white birch, Ikenotaira Ski & Onsen Resort is a romantic getaway for skiers and snowboarders of every level. This resort is particular popular with tree skiers, park rats, and those of beginner to intermediate levels. Popular features of Ikenotaira include the Alpen Blick ski slope with its long, wooded run as well as a wide, gentle slope that provides a sense of openness and freedom.

With two unique areas, there’s plenty to keep visitors entertained. The far left of the mountain (Alpenblick side) tends to be much quieter with no ropes and plenty of scope for in the trees and/or powder trail action but, be warned, there is no really challenging terrain or steeps for the go hard skier or snowboarder. This resort also boasts what is billed as Japan’s premier snowboard park.

Ikenotaira accommodation and village

There is a small village at the base of the Ikenotaira Ski Resort that has generally retained its Japanese flavour. There are quite a few accommodation places available but, be warned, the area is very quiet in the evenings with limited options to eat out. After spending time at the slopes, guests can relax in body and spirit with a soak in the onsen.
