Appi Kogen Ski Resort

Resort features

Appi Kogen - the slopes here are on a grand scale, with a total of 21 courses covered in first-rate snow! Both the refreshing compacted snow slopes and the sense of floating down the powder slope runs are incredible sensations. Appi Kogen, situated on the 40th parallel north and boasting a truly superior snow quality, is open all the way to Golden Week due to its stable condition, which is thanks to the rich environment and north-facing slopes. While on the one hand, the 5.5 kilometer downhill course from the summit is one even beginners can try out, there’s also an non-compacted snow course of approximately 2 kilometers, which is a long powder run on days when snow has fallen and an exciting mogul course with one mogul after another on days without snow. There are also tree runs in the Nishimori Area and Sailer Area, where you can sate yourself on Appi Kogen’s premium powder snow.
