Trip Planner: Asia / Japan / Chubu / Koshinetsu / Niigata Prefecture / Minamiuonuma-gun / Yuzawa-machi / Iwappara Ski Resort
Close to Tokyo and suitable for beginners and families, Iwappara Ski Resort features wide open slopes, good restaurants, a hot spring, and a ski school. The main slope runs for about 4 km (2.4 mi) and stretches to a width of around 500 m (1,700 ft), while beginners can try the "Snowscoot" experience or head with the kids to the resort's slide area. Take a lesson, provided in Japanese or English, at the ski school. You can easily access the resort from Tokyo via the Shinkansen train, or by taking a shuttle bus from Echigo Yuzawa station. You can even stay in the nearby town and take a daily cable car to the resort. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Yuzawa-machi holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Iwappara Ski Resort and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

This is the worst ski resort I’ve ever been to in my life. Even though this is only for beginners, the ticket price doesn’t make sense for this size of the mountain....just too small (i.e. short).

Fantastic resort! Something for everyone, fresh powder and amazing groomers.
